Considering CITV has celebrated 30 years of networked kids output, here's STV's regional effort with legendary presenter Glen Michael on YouTube.

I used to watch this as a wee laddie and was really excited when we were told that the Christmas treat for our primary class day out was to be given a guided tour of Edinburgh's Waxworks Museum by Glen himself.

When he arrived he was very, erm, "merry" and smelt like my Dad after coming home on a Saturday night. One of the resident guides took us around instead, but Glen tagged along going "Ooh" and "Ahh" at everything. Was still a good day and he seemed really nice.

Yes his dog was called Rusty and lamp Palladin.

I liked watching Arabian Nights.

Some of the cartoons I remember him showing were Atom Ant,Roger Ramjet,Batfink,The Banana Splits & Fang Face.There was also another cartoon that he showed.I think it was a little Spanish guy that travelled the word & he use to say 'I want to be your friend,hey amigo'. or to that effect.
