Adventures on Kythera

AUSSIE KIDS Molly (AMEILA FRID – the original Cody Willis in NEIGHBOURS) and Spike (GARY PERAZZO) holiday on a Greek island, where they have the expected nondescript adventures with local girl Tik (REBEKAH ELMALOGLOU, better known as acne-ridden Sophie Simpson from HOME AND AWAY). They were also joined by Zenton, played by an actor whose real name was, somewhat startlingly, ZENTON CHORNY. The only storyline that sticks in the collective memory was something to do with Zenton finding an old skeleton in a cave, and ending up inheriting a pile of rubble masquerading as a house as a result. It was followed, sensibly, by ADVENTURES ON KYTHERA II, which reunited Zenton and Spike but left the girls out of proceedings (although there was the occasional reference to them having sent “letters”). Both series were shown back to back by ITV over the summer of 1991, in the hope of capitalising on the soap opera links. Theme music suspiciously similar to WHO PAYS THE FERRYMAN.

    Still doing the rounds in the summer of 1992.

    One of the boys seemed to have his nose covered with oddly coloured level sun block at all times.
