SPATZ / MIKE & ANGELO

SPATZ


MIKE & ANGELO


I was never a big fan of CITV as a kid, apart from maybe FUN HOUSE, ART ATTACK, KNIGHTMARE, WOOF!, COUNT DUCKULA and T. BAG it was just filled with American rubbish unlike CBBC. The 2 shows that made me hate CITV the most were Mike & Angelo and Spatz, they were both made during the early 90's and I guess because kids love all things American, the people who made these 2 English shows decided to try and fool us by making it look and feel like a 'cool' American kids shows by setting it in places like fast food shops, adding canned laughter, having Americans in it and most annoying of all having a really cheese American style intro with each character smiling at the camera with their names below, pure evil!

I totally agree, CITV was tacky and crap. I remember finding Knightmare depressing as a kid though. Even then I knew it was just a stupid green screen

I always imagined the kids i never got on with at school would be well into citv. Most of their programs were shit, i sware i remember one about a house full of pirates.

I met the American one from Mike and Angelo on the street once, he was quite nice.
The Dreamstone is a real blast from the past as well.

Theme song from Mike & Angelo is so nice. I dream of being the dancing man from the Spatz credits dancing in a tux through a corridor of giant hamburgers to the theme song from Mike & Angelo. Delight!
