I learned to read with the Janet & John books in Infant school. My son learned with The Red/Blue Hat Family books. Glad when the Little Miss books came out. I read Thomas The Tank Engine books when a kid, my son enjoyed the tv programmes & associated toys / clothes. I'm too old for The Wuzzels, but remember the Wurzels / Wombles. My lad's favourite was Teenage Mutant Ninja/Hero Turtles

Growing up in New York I didn't see any of the children''s programmes you mention, apart from The Worzels and The Wombles, which even though I was a bit old for them by the time I arrived here I enjoyed as they gave me a laugh. But I have heard of many of the shows mentioned so I do at least know of them, even if not personally watched.
As a young child I watched a lot of cartoons. Don't remember specific shows, except for 3. The Mickey Mouse Club, which gave me a lasting love for all things Disney. Howdy Doody, a puppet show with a western theme (just couldn't get away from those westerns!), and, in my early/ late teens, rushing home from school for American Bandstand. Loved Dick Clark.
I saw Stevie Wonder for the first time on American Bandstand with my best friend. We both got rather weepy because he seemed so helpless standing there miming to his first hit Fingertips. He was only 12, so you can guess how long ago that was.
Oh to be able to turn back time; I would have arrived here a lot sooner, for starters!
