For our first episode of 2020, Tom takes Morgan back to the 1990s once again, as the boys discuss the nostalgia rush that is Live and Kicking.
We go through a brief history of Saturday morning kids’ TV from Tiswas to SMTV, debate the Andi Peters/Emma Forbes vs Zoe Ball/Jamie Theakston eras and try to remember which one was Trevor or Simon.
We also recall John Barrowman’s involvement, memorable phone-in jingles, and what signaled the demise of a TV institution.
Live and Kicking launched in the early 1990s, and became an institution in the UK when it came to children’s TV.
Saturdays were not complete without a dose of Live and Kicking and its cartoon lineup of X-Men, The Raccoons and more.
Check out our previous shows based on 90s kids TV, including The Animals of Farthing Wood, ReBoot and Batman The Animated Series.
