Rant: Round the Twist / Children`s Programming

What has happened to great home grown Australian produced Children's Television? During one of my recent internet stumbles I was reminded of the original series Round the Twist which was one of my favourite shows growing up.

It had a four season run starting in 1989. I remember the actors changing a few times over the years, but the stories were original, extremely funny and children friendly.

The most memorable episodes would have to be: "Without my Pants" and "The Spaghetti Pigout".

Where have all the great Australian produced Children television shows gone? My generation grew up with such creative wonders. Looking at a TV Guide today and nothing even compares.

The Australian Government and Networks need to pour some more funding towards offering the children of today some decent entertainment.
