‘Henry’s Cat’ was an 80′s kids cartoon which looked like it had been chucked together with scribbly markers in under 2 mins, and that was its unique charm.
The show, which followed Henry and his best friend Chris Rabbit, was created by Stan Haywood and illustrator Bob Godfrey. Bob was also the artist behind the similarly ‘wobbly’ styled 70′s hit cartoon ‘Roobarb’. He died in February 2013 aged 91, just a few days after ‘Roobarb’ narrator Richard Briers..
‘Wizadora’ (1993-1998) gave a harrowing insight into the troubled mind of a woman who is so lonely she tries to form a relationship with a coat hanger – or it’s about a bumbling trainee wizard in a magical house. It depends on how you read it really.
‘Balamory’ (2002-2005) was a relentlessly cheery kids programme set on a fictional Scottish island where everyone dresses in brightly coloured clothes, lives in a brightly coloured house, and asks questions directly to the camera (I hate when they do that …)
It’s perhaps best remembered for the brain-achingly catchy theme tune.
But where are all those Balamory residents now? Find out after the jump!
Not an early 90′s gangster rapper or a character from ‘Prison Break’, but rather ‘T-Bag’ the late 80′s and early 90′s kids show featuring a grouchy time-travelling witch and her long-suffering assistant T-Shirt.
The witch sisters (Tallulah Bag and later Tabatha Bag) apparently needed the little lad around so he could brew them magical cups of tea from the ‘High-T Plant’.. which sounds more than a little suspect.
‘T-Bag’ ran from 1985 to 1992, so what’s happened to the cast since? Find out after the jump!
‘Bernard’s Watch’ (1997-2005 ) was about a young lad who finds a watch that can stop time. Bernard uses this mind-blowing ability to… clean his room, wait for cuts to heal and make sure he’s on time for school.
There are a few concerns in the YouTube comments that Bernard has significantly shortened his life-span by ageing within ‘paused time’ and that all this time-manipulation could have put an incredible strain on his heart. CiTV never responded to these legitimate concerns.
Check out what Bernard looks like now – and a full episode after the jump!
