Friday afternoon's schedule was Victor and Hugo and Knightmare all over. I'm not sure if I'd include Knightmare in there, but certainly Victor and Hugo was wonderful stuff. That considered, if we're including Mike and Angelo, we're going quite late, so...

Afternoon TV schedules ran in 20 minute slots from 12:10 to 12:30 with Tots TV, Wizadora, Allsorts (later, in a foolish attempt to revive, called Gigglish Allsorts. Wayne Jackman who played Bonzo has since gone on to write episodes of the Tweenies on BBC1) and... whatever was on on Thursday afternoons.

Going through old schedules in my head, I remember Dogtanion and the 3 Musketeers, Dungeons and Dragons, Dastardly and Muttley, Heathcliff (circa 94), Inspector Gadget, Jamie and the Magic Torch, and, of course, the ever wonderful (maybe not now they've moved back into the hotel, mind) Sooty and Co (under various carnations). This probably won't help much, but it's what I've scoured my brain for.

For me it was Mr Dressup.  Sort of a hipper version of Mr Rodgers...Canadians will get it.

Also the Friendly Giant.  with his buddies Gerome and Rusty.

Man the CBC can do kids shows.
