Quoting IFEMaster (Reply 2): Jimbo & the Jet Set was one of my favourite cartoons.
Such a classic! I'm tempted to go raid the cupboards for old videos! Let me think... what else was there...?
Does anyone remember Pigeon Street? Bertha? Button Moon? Oh, and I just about caught the tail end of Rainbow.
Have you ever felt like you could float into the sky / like the laws of physics simply don't apply?

Quoting Jetjack74 (Reply 8): Yes. But what I want to know, did this girl ever beat the clown?
The funny thing about that test card. I worked in electrical retailling here in Oz in the '70s, the months before colour TV transmission started here (Mar 1 1975).
In those months leading up up to CTV transmissions the only things that could be colour cast were outside broadcast sports events and the colour test card early in the mornings. We had people lining up outside the store in the mornings to see that little girl and her clown, just to experience colour TV.
A funny thing was receiving complaints from customers viewing tennis on CTV for the first time... since they played at school in the 50's-60's the balls had changed from white to green/yellow.. everything else was fine but the balls were the wrong colour.
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

OK, I know, I wasn't exactly born in the 80s and I don't recognise most of those but I did enjoy Metal Mickey (along with Metal Mickey himself, Irene Handl was a star ) and Terrahawks ("Always expect the unexpected"). Yes, they were "after my time", too, but I still enjoyed them.
