Magic Memories!

Now this is really exciting! Look here! The Magic Roundabout has been brought up to date and what a difference! I speak as a committed fan of the original Magic Roundabout on telly at 5.55pm Remember? In fact I used to know the people who published the French version of the books in France, but that's another story. When I went to college, I had a soft toy version of Dougal on my bed. (Yes, students were much more naive in those days - more of a sheltered upbringing!)
Anyway, click on the link, watch the trailer and sit back and enjoy a couple of moments of nostalgia. And if you are too young to remember it first time round, hard lines - you missed a treat!! :)
P.S. Anyone remember a black and white cartoon in the early sixties called Mr FooFoo?
Or am I the only person in the world who remembers it?
P.P.S. And then there was the original series of Popeye. Used to dash home from school specially to see that................enough already!!!

  2. Hi Maggie. Thanks for your comment. Yes, it is great to be in touch with people from different places through blogging. Very addictive, I find! And very interesting. It's a steep learning curve getting to grips with all these bits of html, but I'm enjoying it.
