Does anyone apart from me remember Belle & Sebastian? Not the band, the other one. No, not the kids book either, the other other one. This one.
It was one of what I would like to think was a golden age of crazy European and European/Japanese co-productions that were serialized over many many weeks on kids TV and included Dogtanian and the Three Muskahounds, The Mysterious Cities of Gold, and Around the World with Willy Fog. I suspect that viewing them now would shatter some rose tinted memories, but I remember enjoying all of them along with the aforementioned Belle and Sebastian.
The reason for this long preamble is that when Jon at iam8bit got in touch and asked if I wanted to contribute to his Nickelodeon tribute show (currently showing at their LA gallery) I jumped at the chance without really having a lot of experience of the channel past bits of their original programming which drifted across the pond. Luckily it turned out that they broadcast a bunch of shows that I had watched as a youngun and so, well, you can see the print above.
