Topaz2308 answers:

It has to be the all time classic Chorlton and the wheelies as it was almost every child of the 70's favourite.

I think it's main attraction was it was bright and loud and a fictional strange world you just wanted to visit.

vultan answers:

I have no children, but I do have a niece, as of about a month ago, so I'm going to answer this anyway.

Bagpuss. It somehow just feels so cosy and safe while being inventive enough and with enough variety in the episodes to be enjoyable even now. Mostly it's just nostalgia - Oliver Postgate's voice just evokes childhood - but hopefully a toad with a banjo could appeal to even the jaded youth of today.

I'd forgotten how weirdly melancholy the opening sequence was.

Family.Guy answers:

I do not have any children either and like Vultan i to am going to supply an answer.

I would share Jamie and the Magic Torch. I loved the music and the adventures they used to get up to.

tracieboo answers:

I loved Bagpuss as a child, my neither of my daughters liked it :(

I also had a passion for the Muppet Show(not stricly a childrens show) but they both loved muppet babies (a video we had) So they at least know who Kermit and Miss Piggy are!

xoloriib answers:

There was a one on the radio - I think it was called 'listen with mother'.

Robin Hood : with Richard Greene as RH.

The early Doctor Whos - up to Colin Baker.

Another one I can't remember the name of had 'puppets' with high pitched sounds instead of voices.

Of course I'm not a father and I have no intention of becoming one but those would be the ones I would choose for children and parents to enjoy together.

Adding my votes to Chorlton, The Muppets and Bagpuss, and raising the stakes to include Willo The Wisp with the excellent vocal talents of Kenneth Williams.

Pingu is still a classic, too.

captain-pilchard answers:

Camberwick green, Bagpuss, tales from the riverbank, Noggin the nog.
They evoke great memories from my childhood and are gentle, harmless fun.

So so many.
First love was probably Bod. (Here comes Bod. [cue intro music]) Hooks you right in from the start. For a very young spangle this was the centre of my universe. Loved that cartoon and all those strange noises.

Must mention many some of my other favourites: Henry's Cat, Battle of The Planets, The Kids of Degrassi Street, The Red Hand Gang, Dungeons and Dragons, Around the World in 80 Days....
