:-D :-D


Never been a fan but having to watch it endlessly with my daughter as a youngest, I got to know their antics fairly well, but I dont like Sooty I cant be doing people that whisper and I dont like Sue the most annoying voice ever however I became quiet fond of Sweep coz he was cheeky and naughty :-D

Sad Hayley very sad because you looked at the programme as an adult. I have to agree mind Sue´s voice is annoying and Sooty does whisper a lot which isn´t a good example although all his whispers are said out aloud after so maybe that is good .

I never did like Sooty and Sweep Bill and Ben with Little Weed were always more to my taste along with the magic roundabout. The things we miss as chidren

I was informed by a 3yr old that Sooty wasnt rude as I once commented that he was infact Shy :-D


I loved the Magic round about and play school but one of the dolls was scariest things I have ever seen. :-0

I used to love coming home from nursey at lunch time and watching Pipkins whilst I ate my lunch funny you know as I never to got see the end of it always fell asleep :-D

I loved Andy Pandy when I was little, but once we were older, my pals and I wondered what he and Teddy got up to in the toy basket with Looby Lou. The wicked minds of adolescents! :-0 :-D

Yes,Mau, we got our first set in 1956, a tiny little thing set in a cabinet with doors. We were the first in our street to get a TV, and I found lots of new "friends" who came knocking in the door to come and watch it! :-D

I can remember one of our neighbours getting a colour TV that caused a lot of excitement I also remember that we were the first to have a telephone instaled and neighbours coming in to have a look at it, I sat and watched it all evening praying for it to ring so I could answer it, and my mum telling me not to play with it as every time I picked up the receiver it would cost her money , what a liar :-|
