James Proclaims (4)

It’s the fifth day of April and, if all is going according to plan, then I should be on to ‘E’ in my quest to come up with an alphabetic guide to the cartoon characters that made me the man I am today.

And, as luck would have it, I appear to be very much on schedule, which is fantastic news.

But before I get on with all that, I’d just like to say a huge thanks to everyone who sent me birthday wishes yesterday. I was genuinely touched to know that so many people care.

I assume I was anyway. I’m writing this a few days in advance so as I type these words, I have no idea if anyone did bother to wish me happy birthday. Frankly I’m going to look pretty stupid if nobody actually did.

But let’s set aside my troubles and the ignorance of all those people who failed to acknowledge my birthday and get on with the matter at hand.

Although would it have killed you to wish me happy birthday? Really. All it would have taken was a few seconds out of your day and you could have made a real difference…

No, it’s too late now…

No, it’s fine, let’s just get on with it…

No, I’m not crying, there’s something in my eye…

Look, I’ll be fine, it doesn’t matter. It wasn’t even a big birthday. It’s just I thought, y’know, what with everything we’ve been through…

Hmmm, I seem to have written myself into a cul de sac with my mock self-pity. How to move on? I could pretend that everything I’ve written above isn’t there and just get on with the A-Z Challenge malarkey. What letter was I on? Oh yes. Today’s letter du jour is ‘E’:

E

‘E’ is for Evil Edna

I remember watching Willo the Wisp as a kid, but I couldn’t tell you what it was about. Indeed so vague was I about the whole thing that I was genuinely surprised to discover, a number of years ago, that Willo the Wisp and The Magic Roundabout were completely different things. Although, they both were utterly bonkers so maybe that’s why I got confused.

One thing I do recall about Willo the Wisp was that there an evil magic television set called Evil Edna. An evil television set? In the woods? I really must watch Willo the Wisp again soon.

In fact, lets watch an episode together now…

  1. I loved this program!! Utterly mental – this and Chorlton and the Wheelies. There were several similar kids shows that I think were produced by people on acid. A bit like Adventure Time is now! P.S. Hope you got your fish and chips 🙂

  2. Enjoyed being reminded of Evil Edna – can’t watch this one though as it was on BBC weren’t it. I might’ve forgot that with a nother post earlier bit late now. But I was busy and only listened. A label above the frame would be a really good idea especially now your site’s a dot com. This one didn’t get me though. Phew! Hopefully I won’t get a theme tune fine for that first one and hopefully you’re having an enjoyable time with your posts. When BBC stop messing up British English language and spellings on their website I might splash out on their license fee so I can listen to TV news again and maybe watch some Panorama and odd good stuff they put on. Then I’ll catch up with some fun viewing here and maybe start watching cbeebies & schoolsTV again to see what they’ve being doing for kids now 🙂

      1. yeah but I spose it might have been hoax bbc info cos they did some (like the Queen being willing to become head of state of US and stuff like that, in Autumn 2016 I think and plenty since an’all) and I read elsewhere I think that anything that’s ever been shown on BBC is subject to license fee laws. So iffy for online users who don’t watch any telly if it’s true and it did appear to be. Not to worry but a quick clear label could be a really good idea but you probably know better than me – I know this was foreign animation series but I think they count that as well as they’re the only Brit broadcasters I think.
