God bless you for this sir, God bless you.

Dear me they'll put up a plaque for anything these days!

Wonderful! I loved Mr Ben. Must go and buy him for my grandson!

Thanks for writing this - love it, and I so enjoyed Mr Benn and his magical shopkeeper. There was a lovely innocence to children's telly in the Seventies.

Mr Benn rules!

Even when I was very young, I thought that there was something unusual about Mr Benn spacing out in a changing room though.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I totally agree with Josie. Today's children's TV is just too 'in your face'.
I was reading your post out to my hubby who is 2 years older than me, and he'd never heard of Mr Benn. I feel sorry for him.

Fantastic. Loved Mr Benn, can't believe there were only 13 episodes. Just show how kids can sit and watch the same thing over and over again.

Thoroughly enjoyable post DG, thank you.

Oh yes, I loved to watch children's TV in those days with my little ones. Not now though, one minute of the shouty modern stuff is too much.

Nice post. In PlummyMummy household we have recently been down memory (old codgers) lane remember Penelope Pitstop and Wacky Races.

There is a modern tv show called Franny's Feet which I am sure has some of the Benn about each episode she tries on a pair of shoes left in her grand-dad's repair shop and goes off to have an adventure. It's more imaginative then many shows on now but not as trippy as Mr Benn.

I've just noticed my utterly awful grammar above. Apologies. Spent far too much time watching tv as a kid I did.

The year 2012 will not bring the end of the world.

It will bring a transformation towards a global sustainable consciousness and that is already taking place now. All the so-called crises are just the toppling of the old world systems like finance, oil based economy, politics, etc. etc.

It sounds like an outrages show and would be fun to watch will look for it online and see if there is a storage of the episodes.
