William's Wish Wellingtons

Ever pretended that you had a special item that could grant you wishes? William doesn't have to because he's got a very special pair of wellies! William's Wish Wellingtons!

When William's Mum bought him a new pair of boots he discovered a note inside: "These are Wish Wellingtons, put them on and make a wish." William Stevenson could now wish himself anywhere in the world, or ask for anything he wanted - which sometimes got him into a spot of bother, such as the occasion when he wished he had the biggest conker in the world in order to win his school's conker championship, or the time when he put his wellingtons on the wrong feet and almost prevented Santa Claus from making his deliveries on Christmas Eve (with a series of wishes gone wrong).

The Real Adventures of Jonny Quest

Time for some world spanning action now in the Real Adventures of Jonny Quest!

14-year-old Jonny Quest invariably finds adventure in exotic locations around the world with his father, renowned scientist/explorer Dr Benton Quest. They are accompanied by Benton's adopted son and assistant, Hadji; Dr Quest's personal bodyguard, Race Bannon; and Jessie Bannon, Race's teenage daughter. And, of course, Jonny's faithful dog Bandit. One more exotic locale has been added to the travelogue - QuestWorld, a virtual-reality system invented by Benton Quest.
Questworld is employed in recreating imaginary or otherwise inaccessible environments. The Questworld system has since been expanded by his son, Hadji and Jessie to include recreational uses as well. In the course of their adventures, the Quest team runs into resistance from a number of sources, ranging from former KGB operatives to their own government to the forces of nature herself. They also receive help from fellow seekers after knowledge, and sometimes from unexpected sources - such as a renegade nuclear submarine captain who targets whaling boats.

Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys

Intergalactic space adventure now, with Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys!

During the monkey-manned spaceflights of the 1960s, one rocket veered off course, sending a chimp named Charlie off into the outer reaches of space. After many years, Charlie’s craft was discovered by the most intelligent race in the universe, The "       " (pronounced by not saying anything. Then followed with the explanation that their race is so advanced that their name cannot be pronounced; only thought. The running joke then had the other space monkeys asking, “The who?”)
Charlie was given enhanced intelligence, weapons, and futuristic technology, along with a charge to protect the universe from the evil Lord Nebula. One of the more unusual villains in cartoon history, Nebula was a half-human, half-black hole who hoped to become a complete black hole, swallow the universe in a “Big Crunch,” then remake it in his own image. His one problem was that, being half human, he was still susceptible to human ailments, such as the common cold and tummyaches.
To aid Charlie (who was given the title "Captain Charlie Simian"), The "       " allowed him to recruit a team of fellow earth monkeys: Shao Lin, a Chinese golden monkey with swift fighting skills and serene wisdom; Spydor, a wisecracking little spider monkey with a long prehensile tail; Dr. Splitz/Splitzy, an orangutan with a scientist/madman split-personality; and Gor, a big, strong gorilla who wrecked the intelligence-enhancing machine before he got a full helping.
The group cruised the stars in their ship, the Primate Avenger, battling Nebula and his cyborg monkey henchman, Rhesus 2, and searching for the ever-elusive bananas. The monkeys mixed fast-talking humor with fast-paced action.

Harry's Mad

People believe that their pets are smart, but I bet none of them are as clever as Harry's parrot, Madison! It's Harry's Mad!

The show begins when Harry Holdsworth inherits his American great-uncle George's macaw named Madison. At first, the Holdsworth family are not very pleased with their new pet, but they soon start to notice that Madison is no ordinary parrot, and that he is highly intelligent and very articulate. He becomes an instant family member. As well as getting the Holdsworths out of many problems, Madison is also the cause of many too. Terry Crumm hears about Madison's intelligence and sets out to steal him on many occasions, but most of the time Madison foils his plans and saves the day.

Galtar and the Golden Lance

A decent action show from Hanna-Barbera, created during the heady reign of He-Man now with Galtar and the Golden Lance!

The series is about the mythical sword-and-sorcery adventures of three companions: Galtar, Princess Goleeta, and her younger mind controlling brother, Zorn. Galtar, with the help of his Golden Lance, is fighting with Tormack, the tyrannical usurper of the kingdom of Bandisar, who is conquering their entire world. Tormack is responsible for the death of both Galtar's parents and assassinating the rest of Goleeta and Zorn's family.
Tormack, among others like him, covets the power of Galtar's supernatural weapon, the Golden Lance, in order to combine it with the stolen ancient and indestructible Sacred Shield, which rightfully belongs to Goleeta and Zorn. For whoever holds both cannot be brought down in any form of combat. The Golden Lance itself normally exists as a rather ordinary-looking short staff. However, when Galtar holds it above his head with both hands, it extends two mystical blades from itself, one on each side, and can then be divided into two swords for dueling. The enchantment that gives the Golden Lance its power also causes any unworthy wielder to bring about an uncontrolled discharge of magical energy from its "hilt," which is called "The Fury Of The Golden Lance."

Grim Tales

Fairy tales were always pretty gruesome, but you need a good storyteller to make them really Grim Tales!

Grim Tales is an animated British television program based on fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm, featuring Rik Mayall as the storyteller dressed in his pyjamas and dressing gown. In every episode Rik sat in a over stuffed chair complete with claws and legs and would tell whacky versions of such fairy tales as Rupunzel, and The Little Tailor. The stories were also told through cartoons and puppet animation that would appear while Rick was telling his story.

Ox Tales

A special request from a BCC fan on Facebook now for you all with Ox Tales!

Welcome to the Funny Farm, an institute run completely by animals. At the top of the herd is Olly the Ox, a good-natured bull who takes in every animal friend he makes: a laughing mole, a sarcastic toucan, a bald lion, a hot-tempered rhino... with every friend he makes his farm gets a little bigger, and a little more wackier. But in spite of all the insanity and the animals mixing with each other, Olly still keeps his good heart and kicks in with his best effort to keep his farm going.

Clarissa Explains It All

Sometimes adults just don't understand what kids are going through. It takes another kid to help and advise. That's where Clarissa can help. She knows what life is like for a teenager, and she knows how to explain it all!

In the series, Clarissa Darling, who is played by Melissa Joan Hart, is a teen girl who addresses the audience directly to describe the things that are happening in her life; dealing with typical pre-adolescent concerns such as school, boys, pimples, wearing her first training bra and an annoying little brother.
The main characters in the show are Clarissa Darling, her family (consisting of her father Marshall, her mother Janet and her little brother Ferguson) and her best friend Sam living in a small suburban town in Ohio. Clarissa and Sam's relationship was a novelty on television at the time, due to few television series allowing a girl and a boy to be merely friends without romance blossoming.
