I was a big fan of the Sid & Marty Kroftt shows, Land of the Lost of course, Sigmund and The Sea Monsters, and the Bugaloos. One that I could not remember the name until looking it up was Far Out Space Nuts. Basically Gilligan and the Skipper in space.

I said lunch! Not launch!!

The one kids' show that always made me go  Buggedout was the Australian production The Lost Islands where shipwrecked children on a world cruise land up on a island which is literally lost in time. The people on that island are ruled by a freaky character named Q who always wears a scary purple mask.

Edited: I always thought its' title was The Lost IslandQuestion

The Great Grape Ape Show.

Small | Large


The whole premise of this Hanna-Barbara King Kong klone was, uh, 'ape' rhymes with 'grape', so howsabout a show about a giant purple gorilla that fights crime!

My sources tell me 'Grape Ape' has been immortalized as the name of a popular strain of marijuana.

One that always stood out to me was the Australian series "Round The Twist" about a family (The Twists) who moved to a lighthouse that was seemingly a hub for all manner of supernatural and pusedoscientific happenings.

Captain Kangaroo used to freak me out a bit.



That 'Mrs. Frog' puppet that would lip-synch opera was the stuff nightmares are made of.

 Buggedout That was a FROG??? I guess I forgot that: I must have known at the time.  You certainly wouldn't know to look at it.

DIVER DAN. A dvd of that show fits here. Weird B&W stuff, with talking fish characters, a mermaid who was hot, and Diver dan, who you could hardly see for the deep sea diveing helmet he wore.
And they all spoke in rhyme...I think...I'll check.

saw this today.  http://listverse.com/2009/06/29/top-10-bizarre-tv-shows-for-kids/  Top 10 Bizarre TV Shows For Kids

Some I have seen like max and ruby and lazy town. Thankfully, my youngest is past the stage of these goofy things. For awhile there I wanted to smack the creators of dora the explorer, try getting that song out of your head.   Hatred  shows  1,2 and 5..  Question

That show used to genuinely give me the Willy's. I remember the one with the ghost in the out-house and the episode with the dragon were really scary for a kids show.  Buggedout

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
