'Danger Mouse' - Penfold and Danger Mouse



From the japes of Count Duckula and Defenders of the Earth to the teen angst of Saved By The Bell and California Dreams, we've been talking wistfully about the days of vintage children's telly when '80s power ballad theme tunes, gunge tanks and Pat Sharp's mullet were all acceptable entertainment.

But we want to know, what were your all-time favourite kids TV classics? What show would you most like to get a reboot? We've picked out five suggestions below, let us know your own at the bottom of the page.

The Racoons
The first couple of seconds of the theme tune are enough to get us blubbing. EMOTIONAL STUFF.



Bananaman
Forget Batman, Spider Man or the Incredible Hulk. This is the one superhero we want back on telly!



Get Your Own Back
Dave Benson Phillips needs the work and there wasn't a single 8-year-old in the country who didn't want to take their parents on this show in the '90s.



The Mysterious Cities of Gold
One of the greatest cartoons of the '80s, which still has a huge cult following online 30 years on from its original release.



Knightmare
Hugo Myatt's haunting dungeon keeper Treguard has forever remained in the memories of children who grew up with this captivating, interactive and innovative series. Before iPhones and Xboxes, this was as cutting edge as kids entertainment got.
