Viewers want Muppet Show back on TV

 

The Muppet Show has topped a poll of programmes viewers want to see return to TV screens.

 

The Addams Family, The Wombles, Rainbow and Red Dwarf also featured in the small-screen top 10.

 

Adults aged between 30 and 40 were asked to list the programmes they would like to see revived.

 

The Muppet Show, which originally ran from 1976 to 1981 and made famous Jim Henson-created characters such as Miss Piggy, Kermit and Gonzo, grabbed the biggest share of the vote.

 

The A-Team, the action adventure series of the 1980s famous for catchphrases such as Hannibal Smith's "I love it when a plan comes together", came second.

 

Crackerjack, the famous children's BBC TV series, was third, followed by the long-running 1980s and 1990s sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf.

 

Dungeons and Dragons, the US animated series of the 1980s, was fifth, followed by Rainbow, featuring the likes of Zippy, Bungle and George, and The Wombles.

 

The top ten was completed by Worzel Gummidge, which starred Jon Pertwee as the walking, talking scarecrow from 1979 to 1981, Bewitched, and The Addams Family.

 

Kevin Murphy, joint managing director of Zed Media, which commissioned the survey, said: "People still have strong emotional attachments to the TV programmes they watched as a child.

 

"The results show the growing trend for all things retro applies to TV as much as fashion."

I thought similar, and I bet so did every poster on this board.

 

Sigh.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

I was alluding to that I would have made the same point had you not done so already.
