When I was growing up in the 80's, one of my favourite kids program on TV is this trippy show called Button Moon. Produced by Thames Television, each 10 minute episode featured the adventures of Mr. Spoon flying to Button Moon in his homemade rocket-ship.
Not many people know this but Button Moon sparked my love for the moon and later on my interest in astronomy. I remember after watching each episode, I would then daydream about my own travels to the moon and beyond. I imagined that I was sitting in my spaceship and it would blast off to take me to the moon where I would then make friends with the different beings living there. It was so much fun. And I grew up wanting to be just like Mr Spoon.
Today, I stumbled upon some episodes of Button Moon on YouTube and they sure brought back lots of sweet memories. I'm even singing to its theme song again:
"We're off to Button Moon!
And we've followed Mr Spoon,
Button Moon! (Button Moon!)
Button Moon! (Button Moon!)"
Ah, I miss those good old days.
