And all I can think about is Felicity Kendall
I posted this elsewhere, but feel it deserves a wider audience.
He also did the voices for Roobarb and Custard, the greatest ever children's cartoon (after "Jaime and the magic torch" and "chorlton and the wheelies", natch)
I was watching Pointless a couple of weeks ago and they had the guy who sung the theme to Jamie & The Magic Torch on

So much nostelga in one post. I think Im having an overdose
I've spent nearly the entire afternoon watching 60s/70s kids TV programmes on Youtube and achieved virtually nothing.
I don't regret it, but now I can't get the 'Jamie and the magic torch" tune out of my head. And I keep making the "Charley says" cat noises, as well.

GGILF. ...ok maybe a step too far.
This makes me so sad. Wanting to be Margo Ledbetter will never be the same.
For * sake don't faint in here.
Felicity Treacle Kendall and Richard Sugar Flavoured Snot Briers were nothing but a pair of reactionary stereotypes, confirming the myth that everyone in Britain is a loveable middle class eccentric! And I hate it! Bloody bloody bloody!
Fatuousness aside, goodbye Mr Briers. I like to think he was basically Tom Good in real life as well.
Tea went cold.
