Classic Kids' TV Shows Re-imagined For Adult Audiences

Over the past decade or two, the market for old kids' TV shows has developed into something of a nostalgia industry. 

I, myself, own a full size Bagpuss who sits on an old wooden school chair next to my TV. 

There are also many products available on the scene based on old children's favourites clearly designed for adults. In this category I would put anything to do with Gerry Anderson these days. Product Enterprise produced some splendid die-cast models of the likes of Fireball XL5, Stingray and Supercar a decade or so back.

Wouldn't it be lovely if some enterprising entrepreneur decided that the market was profitable enough to produce new re-imagined versions of our old favourites - new movies, new TV shows, new books - versions that were clearly aimed at the grown-ups?

Or are you off the opinion that such a move is tantamount to a bastardisation of a once cherished childhood memory...? 

Here's a few of my ideas anyway...
