Anyone remember this cartoon from back in the 80's, possibly early 90's?.
It would start with people in an everyday setting and then one of them would get a cold or flu or something similar at which point they went into the human body and showed things like antibodies fighting various illness in the form of cartoon characters.
It explained how the human body functioned.
I think it may have been on The Childrens channel back in the day.
Any ideas?.

Magic Schoolbus... And it was on Nick. at the time when they had only one channel. Back before Sky Digital came out and bloated with too many un-needed channels.

This isn't "Once Upon a Time...Life" is it?

That featured a character who was entirely beard, apart from facial features hands and feet. It followed some characters who fought ff various infections, as well as bits and bobs based around the human body.

I seem to remember a related series with the beardy bloke about history, but may be mistaken.

Here's a link, anyway

The Magic Schoolbus was around the mid 90s, but there was a series around the 80s called Bodytalk.

Thats it, Once upon a time, Life.
I could not think of that name for years.
That was such a classic and would be relevant today to kids learning.
Must try and seek out some clips or a dvd.

The french made great animation series.
There is a real charm to the cheap UK voiceover though.

I could have been "Say ha" or something along those lines. While Magic school bus varied each week. Say ha focused on the human body and I believe it was on the children's channel.

It IS Once Upon a time...life. There are many other spin off shows - Once upon A time...Space and OUAT..Man and OUAT The Americas and OUAT Discoveries. The Childrens Channel also screened many of them in the late 80s.

I think it was on Channel 4 on a Saturday morning. Didn't they have a strand called Comic Book where they showed cartoons between 6 and 7/7.30ish before Pugwall?

I seem to recall it was first shown on ITV on Sunday morning at about 10 am in the early 80s. They only showed the one about history and the one in the human body
