Charley and I were in the park....
....when a man came up. Remember these 1970 public information films for young children? Anyone that was kicking around this time and in the early 80's will I'm sure. I think the phrase "would you like to see my puppies" probably was born out of these little broadcasts! And also Charley the cat doing his meowing noise. I wonder what the boy was called? There was even a rave tune by The Prodigy featuring "Charley says.." My husband remembers the Joe and Petunia series in particular the Country Code but I don't as much.
I wonder if these type of films will make a comeback? Maybe they should in an updated fashion - remind people how to behave and the like. I certainly wouldn't have a problem with my children watching the series in fact I might show them tomorrow and see what they think.
There's a funny one on you tube where Charley says don't interrupt mummy and the milkman! There's the whole lot on there so if you're feeling nostalgic take a look.
