I enjoy making the most of my weekends & what Adelaide has to offer.

Looking back at my more often than not misspent childhood and youth, what I remember most, is not my old school friends or teachers, but the TV series I couldn't wait to get home from school to watch before Fat Cat came on at 7.30pm to bid us "good night". Those were the days (not giving away my age)!
One of our family's favourites which we genuinely enjoyed was Monkey - from left to right are the characters Sandy; Monkey; Tripitaka; Yu Lung (the horse) and Pigsy! Image courtesy of www.planetvideo.com.au
A few years ago, my son and I were browsing at a great video store which still stocked and sold both Monkey and Scooby Doo DVDs - I was in nostalgic heaven! My son only had to watch one "Monkey Magic" episode before he was hooked ... Same goes for anyScooby Doo or Doctor Who episode.
Monkey has been in hibernation for a couple of years now and with the dark nights, we've been hunting around for DVDs to watch and surprise - out came Monkey. Watching it now, it's such a bizarre show, especially with the English language dubbing which must have been pretty high tech back then (in 1978, believe it or not - now I feel old).
Can agree with Monkey being entertaining for all ages, as was Dr. Who, but I don't watch current series. Loved early Pizza until Sleek found a better paying job, Maybe joined a union. Mother and Son. Norm Gunston. maybe we now have too many channels.I caught most of Outnumberred, was brilliant Then Mash won't go away. Mick
