Here Come the Double Deckers

Show Summary

This series was a rare BBC/American co-production that was a hit on both sides of the Atlantic. Filmed and set in England, the series followed the adventures of a gang of city kids, ages 9 to 16, whose clubhouse was a London double-decker bus residing in a junkyard. Helped out by their friend Melvin, a grown-up, the kids found themselves involved in a different adventure each week. Thanks to the era in which it was made, the series retains a rather mod and groovy feel to it.

    Here Comes The Double Deckers was a rare British-American co-produced show that once ran on ABC on Saturday mornings.



    The show tells the adventures of a group of London kids who hang out in a dilapidated double decker bus in a junkyard. They also have a grown-up friend named Melvin who helps them out in their daily adventures. I barely remember seeing this show a couple of times when it was on the air back in 1971 when i was younger.



    Sadly, the junk they pass off as kids' shows nowadays on cable TV are a far cry from this endearing gem. I wonder if this series will eventually make its way onto DVD. One can dream, can't i?moreless
  • Very enjoyable children's show from the U.K.

    I used to really like this when it was on since it was a bit different than the usual kiddie fare on TV then. The fact that it was an import from England also had it's appeal-everybody was mad for anything British for a long time after the British Invasion in the mid 60s. I've read where only one season's worth of shows was filmed. It was on ABC on Saturday one year and the next year it got bumped to Sundays for another season. Apparently 20th Century Fox has the rights in the US to this show. I wish they'd release it on DVD.moreless
  • A childrens adventure show based around a gang of kids in an abandoned double decker

    8.0
    Set in the UK in the early 70's, this programme was about a bunch of kids who hung out in an old abandoned double decker in a yard. The story line follows the adventures of these children who form a harmless we gang called the double deckers and they all had strange nicknames such as tigger and brains. It also had a fair amount of dancing and singing. Peter Firth acts as Scooper but I havent seen the others in anything since. It is just a harmless piece of fun that show that kids dont need a playstation to have a good time.moreless
