Cartoons... dont remember many... maybe the Racoons at somepoint?


TV- Neighbours Funhouse, Krypton Factor, Noels house party altho that might have been later? Never been on for TV


Food- Spag bol was all I ever wanted as a kid... love everything though, funny seeing Im such a skinny runt!


Toys- had (and still have in the attic) millions of Matchbox cars and had lots of road carpet to drive them on lol. Lego and later Knex. Pushbikes and pedal go-karts were always a massive part of my childhood though outside alot compared to the 'new computer' generation... who seem to be bored as soon as they leave the house. Well duh if you just stand around on street corners or outside cornershops your gunna be bored
