"THE MAGIC ROUNDABOUT - ORIGINAL BBC 1970's EPISODE" . . . . I DON'T KNOW IF THIS SERIES WAS EVER SCREENED IN THE STATES BUT FOR ANYBODY MY AGE FROM THE UK, AUSSIE OR NZ THE 'MAGIC ROUNDABOUT' WAS A STAPLE OF VERY EARLY CHILDHOOD . . . . RUMOURS AND URBAN MYTH ABOUT THE WRITERS BEING WHACKED OFF THEIR TITS ON ACID ARE RIFE . . . . I CHOOSE TO BELIEVE IT . . . . FEELS RIGHT.
I think it was originally produced in France or at least with some sort of French connection to it, but the stuff we grew up with was voiced by Poms . . . . it was kinda like psychedelia for little kids and I was tripped out by it completely, always felt pretty fucking 'magical' actually for a three and four year old, weird shit for sure. Zebedee, the springy dude, was the coolest . . . . made "Bill and Ben" seem pretty lame . . . . whoever said nothing good ever came from drug abuse ???
