  • A children's show in the early days of Australia television that dared to put creativity and quality into children's television which was ultimately underappreaciated by the ABC but not the public.moreless

    I remember fondly the earlier 'Magic Circle Club' which was a huge hit on TEN10 commercial television, which folded because of it's expense. As a kid, it really was something different and creative to watch. Seemingly, a year or so later, it seemed to be reincarnated as 'Adventure Island' on the ABC. It had largely the same feel, and at least a few of the same cast. Fredd Bear (the character) and Nancy Cato and John Michael Howson (Fee Fee Bear/clown) featured in both. John Michael Howson also scripted at least some of the shows. Both shows were from the mind of producer Godfrey Philipp. The show lasted five years and it's axing was even mentioned in Parliament in Australia.moreless

    I used to watch Adventure Island as a child and I know you have some info wrong. Mary Hardy played the part of Wanda Wise, not Mike Hardy.... Colin McEwan played Miser Meanie's part after Robert Essex left the show.



    Jim Smilie played the part of Smiling Jim, not Smilie Jim..and Marion Edward played the part of Betty Bruin, not dodo panda.



    I still have pics that were sent to me from the show back in the late 60's. If anyone wants to see them, I will gladly scan them and send them on..and if anyone knows what happened to Liz Harris who played Liza in the show, I would like to hear about itmoreless
  • I can see how some people say that there are problems with Adventure Island but I personally think that it is still very enjoyable.

    I can see how some people say that there are problems with Adventure Island but I personally think that it is still very enjoyable. It's nowhere near some of the other shows that I've watched lately but it's just because those were particularly good not that Adventure Island was particularly bad. Recommended if you have time to spare.
