Did John Craven host Screen Test?
You might be confusing him with the show's first presenter Michael Rodd

Does anyone remember Anything You Can Do from Granada. Two teams of kids from different tv regions would compete on various tasks (drawing, building something, playing musical instruments, etc) Chris Kelly was the host, and they had a panel of celebs judging the kids. I went to one of the recordings in the very early 70's and the judges were Russell Harty, Ayshea Brough and Helen Shapiro

Very very obscure........but.......
A cartoon series called Space Ace. A Japanese iconic programme from 1965-66
I was but a 6 year old, but the visuals are still instilled within.

God knows. I would rightly pay good money for them. Rod Hull's Pink Windmill show was one of my favourite programmes at the time yet its not avaliable to buy. Ive seen the odd clips on youtube but the user never responds to my PMs.

Fingermouse
Fingerbob

OMG how could I forget Cracker jack and Cheggars. I used to have a crush on Stu Francis

Lets not forget Tizwaz and the phantom pie flinger!

You were either a Tizwaz or Swap Shop fan? I was Chris Tarrant all the way. I was not allowed to watch OTT though

I forgot to mention Digimon (although I didn't like it as much as Pokemon), My Parents are Aliens and Dennis The Menace. Does Mr Bean: The Animated Series also count? I think it came out in the early 00s.
