I can't remember much about the individual shows but the theme tunes stuck with me, especially the Jamie one.



After Button moon, i still sing it occasionally we had Rosie and Jim. I am not sure the pc brigade would allow heterosexual puppets kissing on tv these days? but s**t happens in life. :)


And who didn't like Zippy? George & Bungle would have been assigned every Gender in the book if it came out today. I'm guessing they were mates of Jeffrey.

What a programme that was. I especially loved Dear Drooper and Fleagle take out the trash.

My all time favourite programme is Hill St Blues.
I had every single episode saved on VHS tapes at one time.
Great theme music as well.
