    And probably the original Knightmare intro sequence too. Not particularly funny, it instead primed you for the amazing fantasy adventure to come. Plus the music, being keyboard produced, gave it that techno-edge that tied in neatly with all the whizzy graphics you were going to see on the show. “Welcome once again to the dungeon of deceit!”

    Talespin. Maybe not quite Cream-era, but it was an ace cartoon and it had an ace theme tune.

    I would have loved to have been in the room when they pitched that one to Disney: “It’s basically the cast of the Jungle Book, but they run an air cargo freight business”

    Never The Twain. The programme which followed was hideous, mind.
