Here Come The Double Deckers

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Who remembers the BBC children's television programme "The Double Deckers" with Melvyn Hayes et al. It has developed a cult following now and has its' own website. There was a very chubby kid amongst them, who was forever eating! They don't make programmes like that any more!

    I used to watch the Double Deckers on a Saturday morning before the Banana Splits. I used to love Billie the tomboy girl and Donut the fat boy that was always eating. Wonder what happened to them all.

    I used to love the Double Deckers. I can remember being ill once from school and lying on the sofa watching an episode where Doughnut went down a slide into a "play room" and stuffed himself with doughnuts :) :)

    Used to watch this all the time. Also watched it on Saturday mornings with my friends at the local cinema's Saturday Matinee, would be cool if it were available on dvd. I think they did a Childrens film foundation big screen of it called The Magnificent 7 1/2 ? anyone else recall this?
