Children of the Sun, this podcast has just begun...

In our latest episode, we will be following the path of the setting sun that leads to El Dorado, as Morgan teaches Tom about the Mysterious Cities of Gold.

In this episode, we discuss the classic 1980s cartoon series in depth, including its fantastic theme tune and soundtrack, characters, cast, sequels and more.

We also chat about:

  • Do you remember Hammerman and Gatchaman?
  • Philip Schofield's singing ability in the Broom Cupboard
  • How so many kids shows revolve around finding a thing that f*****g flies
  • How kids were clearly far more intelligent back in the '80s to follow this stuff each week
  • A very mysterious jar
  • Is nostalgia happy or sad?
  • The wonders of Skips and Billy Bear
  • How Tom was recently offended at a pub
