Adventures Every Day

What is one television show or episode from your childhood

that you still remember today?

television watching.jpgI remember several shows from childhood. My childhood memories seem very sharp, unlike the memories from my twenties (since my head injuries). But one show comes to mind as one of our all time favourites. My brother watched it, and my two younger sisters and I loved it.

c of goldIt called The Mysterious Cities Of Gold. It was truly epic! It was about three children and a whole bunch of adults with their own self-interest at heart who are traipsing around South America in search for “The Cities Of Gold”. Adventures every day!!!

This is the theme tune, shown at the start of each episode, which I still sing thirty years after watching that show.

I don’t have the time today to tell you all about it, maybe I should try another post with more detail about it. There was so much going on. We learnt all sorts about the history of the Americas. We loved those three children.

If you are curious, then there is the link at the bottom of this post so you can read what Wikipedia has to say about the show. But the best way to enjoy it, is to go back to being seven years old and be riding around on your bike and then to realize is is almost time for your favourite show. Then come running into the house and lollop onto the sofa with your siblings all ready to sing along at the top of your voices to the theme tune and twirl around with your arms outstretched like a giant condor.

What a show!

    1. You must have been an eighties kiddo too. It was such an epic cartoon series. We loved the characters and it made us all want to visit South America in search of adventure.


    1. I remember SccobyDoo being on TV (I think it was on ITV). We didn’t watch it because we were never sure if it was about ghosts or men dressed up as ghosts. I don’t remember Captain Scarlett or UFO.

      I was watching TV…1986-1991. Before that I was too young to know what was going on, and after that we became too busy for TV. But there were a couple of programmes like “The Cities Of Gold” that we became wrapped up in.

  1. The ones I still remember were an animated (or anime version, not sure which) of Little Women, Swiss Family Robinson (in this version, they had only three kids and one was a girl – and there was an aborigine kid that was stuck on the island with them) and Superbook, in which there’s this old Bible up in the attic that if you open it, it will take you to whatever particular story you happened to open up to.


  2. I absolutely loved this cartoon! I have it on DVD, but haven’t been able to maintain enough interest in adulthood to watch it all the way through again. But I did go travelling in South America and wonder if this series sparked my interest.
