19 British Kids TV Shows That Seriously Need To Come Back

If Raven and The Worst Witch are coming back then these should too!

Posted on

1. Get Your Own Back

Get Your Own Back was all about giving kids rights and avenging the terrible injustices inflicted on them by the adults in their life. Without this show do children even have rights anymore?

2. 50/50

CBBC

Every '00s kid wished so badly that their school would be on this show and that they would get to run around on inflatables and wave their hands around at every victory. Without 50/50 schools today probably like each other and get on, ugh.

3. Jungle Run

CITV

In my opinion every child should experience the pure joy of seeing their peers being chased around a fake jungle by two monkeys in order to win a DVD player.

4. My Parents Are Aliens

Bryan and Sophie actually invented comedy and it's such a shame that today's kids will never get to enjoy them, or see Brian in a nappy.

5. Boohbah

ITV

If BoohBah made a comeback then LSD use would dramatically drop as people would be using the show as a hallucinogenic. Please Mr TV man just consider re-airing it.

6. Dick and Dom in da Bungalow

If kids today can't wake up on Saturday mornings and watch Dick and Dom play bogies then I don't want to live in this world.

7. The Demon Headmaster

CBBC

I bet you there is havoc in schools nowadays because no one is shit scared of their head teacher.

8. SMTV

SMTV was the absolute peak of Saturday morning TV and no one has since parodied Friends as well as Chums did. What do kids even do on Saturday mornings now?

9. The Mysti Show

CBBC

A half-fairy half-human that sometimes interviews Jackie Chan and sometimes has a fictional romance story, incredible TV!

10. The Tweenies

The Tweenies was just Friends for children, but with less sex and more singing. The show mainly needs to come back because of that Jam of an intro song.

11. TMI

CBBC

Some may call TMI the poor man's SMTV but they would be wrong. It had the best games on their website and pretty much every week we got to see either Sam and Mark be gunged, which was a blessing.

12. Grange Hill

Without Grange Hill primary school kids probably aren't scared of high school and probably have realistic views of the drama levels that go on there. We must put an end to this and bring the show back!

13. Byker Grove

CBBC

Byker Grove honestly dealt with a lot of issues that probably helped a lot of kids watching it. Also, it introduced us to Ant & Dec so we obviously need it to come back to continue the legacy of TV double acts.

14. The Queen's Nose

There is a whole generation of children going around and not rubbing 50p coins, they could be missing out on precious wishes! They need to be taught proper 50p etiquette and see this show.

15. Come Outside

If Come Outside isn't shown to all children then how will they have dreams of flying around in a polkadot airplane with their dog?

16. Brum

CBBC

Give Birmingham the justice it deserves and put Brum back on our screens, he was the city's hero who has been cruelly forgotten.

17. Bamzooki

Nothing was as fun as building your own zook online and showing it to your friends, and now nothing is better as an adult than realising that it was just a bunch of kids yelling at a table. BRING BACK BAMZOOKI!

18. Bernard's Watch

CITV

Bernard's Watch is responsible for encouraging kids to think about what kind of shit they'd fuck up if they could stop time. Without the show children don't have imaginations.

19. Kerching!

Kerching! is potentially the most wholesome show in existence and without it children don't know how to love their mothers and don't have aspirations to "make a million for my mum". Bring it back!
