I guess you had to be there

Tonight the subject of 80's TV came up. There used to be a show on the ABC, a BBC import I believe, called Metal Mickey. Which was about a giant robot that came to life when it ate atomic cheezles or something. Only when I mentioned it I got confused and said Proton Energy pills. This error was quickly pointed out since PPEP's are from Roger Ramjet, also an shown in the 80's ABC TV product.

To which I responded 'I seem to have conflated the magic pills of our childhood.'

I put money down I am the first person alive to have said those words in that order.


BTW Was Ramjet using performance enhancing drugs? What kind of message is that for the kids?

  1. Metal Mickey rocked. So did Supergran. And The Ratties. And Bananaman.

    Roger Ramjet - definitely a candidate for rehab.


No comments needed, really.
