Australian Children's tv Shows when I grew up were something else, man.
Cybergirl - an alien robot in latex trousers fights other aliens in cheap fetish gear with the power of cyber and cheap composite effects.
Thunderstone: A little after my time, but it was basically Mad Max for kids.
Ferals - Basically shit muppets that lived in a sewer and/or TV studio.
And of course, the best of all children's TV for all time, Round the twist.
