I get warm fuzzies viewing all the nostalgia from my childhood in this thread.
I had totally forgotten about Mayor McCheese!

Like the proverbial House of Frightenstein librarian dusting off the old book, I'm reaching in the dark back recesses for these two.

Those are great! This is better than a good chunk of current TV programming

The only unfortunate aspect is that the SD quality footage combined with the dark night scenes makes it very difficult (for me at least) to make out a lot of the details in the footage. Otherwise it's an awesome time capsule of 80s Toronto.

This was one from my youth. Rocket Robinhood.

Paul Soles was the lead voice also did Spiderman.

Other shows from my youth, Forest Rangers, Razzle Dazzle and the usual kids shows. we only had 2 stations then. CBC and CTV.
Why complain about the weather? Its always going to be here. You on the other hand will not.
