Remember when the most important thing in your life was getting home from school in time for your favouirte kids’ TV show? Whether that was Eerie Indiana or Albert The Fifth Muskateer – all that mattered was making sure you were sat on your sofa with a Dairylea Dunkable as the theme tune started. Nothing made you happier, right?

Seeing as it’s January, and heat Makes You Happy is, erm, well, trying to make you happy, we thought we’d take a look back at some of the kids’ TV shows we used to be obsessed with but have probably now forgotten about.
