TV: Y is for...

You and Me

UBIQUITOUS KIDS’ infotainment presented in classic era by one of the following: a) stop-motion duo of hamster (“Alice”) and hyperactive crow (“Crow”) doing a sort of running commentary on some footage of real life kids doing mundane stuff (going to the doctor/library etc.), with Crow the impatient uncomprehending stooge and Alice the knowledgeable one calmly explaining everything; b) the clackety-mouthed Duncan the Dragon; a human presenter would chat in the studio with Duncan sitting on his wall, there’d be a story, with, again, frequent interruptions/questions from Duncan etc. Very basic but enduring stuff. Makeover in the 80s resulted in lame puppet things Cosmo and Dibs and reggaefied theme by UB40.
