I can play the theme tune to Mysterious Cities Of Gold on the ukulele.

That's my "cool story du jour".

That's fabulous.

Apart from the ukelele part. Maybe if I was sitting quite far away when I heard it. That's why it's such a good stage instrument. Up close it's sound is terrifying.

I woke up this morning and the first thing that popped into my head was the song from 'The Family Ness' that had listened too yesterday

I've never considered my uke to be terrifying, my kids love it...

...it's semi-acoustic if that helps.

I didn't know they were making a sequel to Mysterious Cities...

The first of these seasons will see the series move to Asia. The design of the characters will be the same with some subtle upgrades in the animation. Jean Chalopin produces the show and acts as a creative consultant for the script, which is written by Hadrian Soulez-Lariviere from Chalopin's own draft for the sequel; while Bernard Deyries reportedly serves as art director. New background music will be composed by Noam Kaniel. The first new season due is due to start airing on TF1 in September 2012.

Wow, interesting. I'm apprehensively excited.

About the ukelele, maybe it's just the way my brother-in-law plays it.

Some absolute classics in the past few pages.

I saw that Captain Caaaaaaaaaveman's already been mentioned but, how about its end credits theme?

Twang-tastic!



And yes, Mockmaster, I remember Peter No-Tail. Poor Peter :(

Bit of a longshot but i'll give it a go anyway. When I was kid and visited my nans I always remember a cartoon on at lunchtimes (12-2) on ITV (I think). It was pre-97 when my nan died, and I can't remember many details except it had animals in it and a man living in a house. It was possibly related to a noahs ark type concept.

I know that was the worst description ever, but I can't remember back that far for a show that I may or may not have made up :lol: .

Noah's island was BBC at weekends, post '97, and had no people in it. But it would probably have been my first guess :lol:

I remember a bloke in a house in the middle of nowhere with a road crossroads near by and different animals would come past visit. Couldnt even tell you if it was British/American. I remember a giraffe in it i'm sure, so i'd go zoo animals.
