Is that a recent cartoon that might have been on the Cartoon Network, I  will have to ask my 10 year old nephew.

Any Aussie Forum members remember the Japanese TV show The Sumari in the 1960's Starring Shintaro and all his ninja enemies, I remember racing home from school to watch it, anyway the SBS Channel is showing a documentary special on the show, check your TV guides over the next 2 weeks, the show now reminds me of the other show Monkey with the japanese voices dubbed in english

I remember a japanese show in the 1960s about Samurai but don't remember what it was called.  I didn't really like it.

Shintaro!I remember it well.Wonder if it is on DVD.When I was little tv didn't start til 5.00(in New Zealand)so we didn't have to rush home.

The tv special Shintaro is on SBS ONE wednesday night at 8.30pm -
It is a look at the cross cultural success of the 1960s tv series - The Samurai - imported from Japan and dubbed into english, it was a smash hit, astonishing broadcasters, advertisers, the press and critics alike

 In 1965, Koichi Ose, the japanese actor who played the Samurai landed at Melbourne's airport he was greeted by 7000 fans - more than greeted the Beatles the previous year.

The program had a limited run in syndication in the USA - but not on the major networks

Crikey,I forgot to put down my favourite australian childhood tv series in the 1960, Skippy the Bush Kangaroo, it was very popular around the world, anyone know if it was shown on American TV.

I watched the Samurai tv documentary, WOW IT WAS TERRIFIC, brought back great memories of my childhood in the the 1960's in Sydney.I remember my brother  and I dressing up in black pjamas as ninjas and using mum's broomstick as a sword fighting the neighbour kids.
 I hope SBS re runs the tv series and releases the the documentary on DVD, I will get back with the release date

I think that the Adams family was better but the Munsters had Yvonne deCarlo from Vancouver who was a great actress.

Wow I don't watch television anymore as I cannot abide the constant barrage of advertisements!

I was thinking about my childhood favourites:-

The Box of Delights - One of the most memorable children's series ever! I adored it and have never forgotten the wonder I felt watching it
Will-O'-the-Wisp - Adorable classic cartoon series with all character voiced by the incomparable Kenneth Wiiliams. I particularly loved Moog and Evil Edna
Doctor Who - I adored Tom Baker he was My Doctor (This is still one of my faves and I watch it avidly! I will miss David Tenant as he is now my second favourite Doctor)

Adult faves:-

Inspector Morse - John Thaw was a wonderful actor and is still sorely missed
Yes Minister/Prime Minister - Untouchable as political satire at it's best
Nightie Night - Omg I was so shocked when I discovered this sinfully hilarious and appallingly naughty comic classic! It still makes me giggle remembering some of the scenes
Brideshead Revisited (1981) - I still think of Charles, Sebastian and Julia as though they are old acquaintances!
This Life - I was completely hooked! I so related to Anna - then again everyone seemed to relate to her!
I Claudius - Genius! Sian Philips was the personification of pure delicious 'Evil' and Derek Jacobi was spectacular!
House of Cards/To Play the King/The Final Cut - The wonderful Ian Richardson as a criminally cunning and ruthless politician! Unforgettable!
