Who remembers Mary Mungo & Midge? I certainly didn’t remember them until I came across this video on YouTube. The amazing thing is that as soon as I started watching it was like I had only seen it yesterday.
Mary Mungo & Midge was one of my favorites. I just looked at a whole lot of old British children’s TV and I think that what makes it so special is the room for imagination and fantasy that these programs created. What could be more excitinmg in the early 70s than riding the lift to get to your top-floor flat, riding on the Trumpton fire engine, lifting things by crane onto the Chigley train. All such harmless fun.
