If you turn on the TV on a Saturday morning these days, you'll find cookery programmes, soap catch-ups and makeover challenges.
Hardly anything for younsgters apart from a few cartoons.
It's very different from how it used to be.
Kids' TV used to rule Saturday mornings and were the only reason we rolled out of bed early.
But audience figures dropped as more and more channels were launched and the classic children's programmes of yesteryear disappeared from the listings.
Now, though, there is the first hint of a revival. CBBC recently announced a new children's show, likely to be called Live and Dangerous when it starts in September 2017.
And on July 8 and 9, CBBC broadcast a Summer Social with presenters including Hacker T. Dog, who is expected to host the Live and Dangerous show.
Will it succeed in re-creating past glories? Time will tell but it has stirred a lot of nostalgia for the glory days of children's TV.
If you combine celebrity phone-ins, custard pies, cartoons and competitions with a load of gunge and glamorous guests, you would get the classic recipe for a Saturday morning children's TV show.
Some were made in Birmingham including Tiswas and its successors The Saturday Show and then The Saturday Starship.
It’s believed the earliest Saturday morning kids’ TV show was Zokko!, aired by the BBC in black and white from 1968 to 1970.
Here are our top Saturday morning children’s TV programmes of yesteryear.
Standing for Today Is Saturday, Watch And Smile, this classic Saturday kids' show was on our screens from January 5, 1974, to April 3, 1982, and was produced by Birmingham’s ATV.
It was broadcast live and aired by most of the regions in the ITV network.
Chris Tarrant hosted the show with other presenters, including Sally James who joined in Series 4. Tarrant left at the end of the penultimate series.
Others to appear on the show included Bob Carolgees and his puppet Spit The Dog, and Jasper Carrott who invented The Dying Fly dance, where everyone lay on their backs on the floor and waved their arms and legs in the air.
It was in Series 4 that new producer/director Glyn Edwards devised the idea of the Phantom Flan Flinger.
At that time ATV executives had wanted to call a halt to the slapstick elements of the programme, believing that throwing custard pies was a bad influence on young viewers.
Giving all pie-throwing duties to a masked villain was a way round this and allowed the messy mayhem to continue.
Benny, who now lives in Cheswick Green, remembers being told who to target and when to strike, and recalls that he couldn’t fling a flan in the face of Cliff Richard because the star was wearing contact lenses.
2. The Banana Splits Adventure Hour
This wasn't in the same format as most of the other Saturday programmes because it was fronted by a band - The Banana Splits - consisting of costumed animal characters.
The show, produced by animation legends Hanna-Barbera, ran on NBC in the USA from 1968 to 1970 and was picked up by BBC1 for UK broadcast during the 70s.
The four characters heading the programme were Fleegle the beagle, Bingo the gorilla, Drooper the lion and Snorky the elephant.
Inspired by the Monkees, they were known for their theme music The Tra La La Song (One Banana, Two Banana).
The show included the live-action serial Danger Island and the cartoons Arabian Knights, The Three Musketeeers and Micro Ventures.
3. Multi-Coloured Swap Shop
Often known simply as Swap Shop, this was hosted by Noel Edmonds, accompanied by Keith Chegwin, John Craven and Maggie Philbin - and a toy dinosaur called Posh Paws (an anagram of Swap Shop).
It's widely believed to have been the BBC's answer to Tiswas and ran on BBC1 from October 2, 1976, to March 27, 1982, when Edmonds left to focus instead on Saturday evenings with his new project The Late, Late Breakfast Show.
4. Saturday Superstore
Saturday Superstore was Swap Shop’s successor, running on BBC1 from 1982 to 1987.
Presenters included Mike Read, Maggie Philbin, Sarah Greene, Keith Chegwin and John Craven.
It included a talent show called Search for a Superstar, as well as a large bird puppet called Crow whose smaller nephew Malcolm appeared in later programmes.
5. Going Live!
Philip Schofield and Sarah Greene were the main presenters of this Saturday show airing on BBC1 from 1987 to 1993.
Various guests stood in when Greene was in a helicopter crash and when Schofield was starring in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.
The show is well remembered for its puppet Gordon the Gopher.
Other features were comedy duo Trevor and Simon, agony uncle Phillip Hodson, a Double Dare gunge challenge, a video vote and a Live Line section in which pop stars paid surprise visits to fans.
6. Live & Kicking
This was the Beeb's replacement for Going Live! and was on our screens from 1993 to 2001.
It kept many of the features from Going Live! and had a host of presenters including Andi Peters, Emma Forbes, John Barrowman, Jamie Theakston and Zoe Ball.
Noel’s House Party character Mr Blobby made an appearance in the show, whose features also included cartoons Rugrats, The Simpsons and X-Men and sitcom Smart Guy.
It was replaced by The Saturday Show, whose presenters included Dani Behr and Fearne Cotton.
7. SMTV Live
ITV’s most successful children’s programme since Tiswas proved to be a much bigger hit in the ratings than the BBC's Live & Kicking.
The combination of Ant and Dec with Cat Deeley was a winner for SMTV Live, which ran from 1998 to 2003. Several others hosted the show after the original presenters left, including Steps singers H and Claire, Big Brother winner Brian Dowling, Tess Daly and Stephen Mulhern.
Many of the sketches were parodies of other popular shows - including Chums (based on Friends), The Vicar of Dribbley, Casually and Eminemmerdale.
There was also the Wonkey Donkey quiz, plus featured programmes including cartoons Pokemon, The Flintstones and SpongeBob SquarePants.
8. No. 73
Sandi Toksvig was one of the key stars of this programme, which ran from 1982 to 1988 and was markedly different from the usual Saturday morning fare because of its focus on drama.
Rather than presenters appearing as themselves, it featured actors who portrayed various characters as they introduced the standard Saturday morning guests, music videos, cartoons and competitions.
Toksvig’s character Ethel Davis owned the fictional address after which the programme was named.
There were also spoof performances by the fictional company Front Door Productions. The stories were parodies of the Carry On films, Agatha Christie, James Bond, the A-Team and The Three Musketeers.
9. Wide Awake Club
Presented by Timmy Mallett, Michaela Strachan and former Magpie co-host Tommy Boyd, Wide Awake Club ran on ITV’s breakfast channel TV-am from 1984 to 1989.
There was a science slot fronted by guest experts such as Carol Vorderman and a number of other games and competitions.
It is credited as a launchpad for the career of Austin Powers star Mike Myers, who had a segment called Sound Asleep Club. And it also sparked two spin-offs: The school holidays show Wacaday and Sunday morning programme WAC Extra.
It was replaced by Hey, Hey, It’s Saturday which in turn gave way to TV Mayhem.
10. Gimme 5
Jenny Powell presented this Saturday show, which was broadcast on ITV from 1992 to 1994.
It offered the usual mix of guests, games, competitions and cartoons.
