I used to love this as a kid, and everyone I speak to never remembers it. I still have one (just one) episode on tape that I watch every Christmas (and it's proof that it existed too!) :-) It was great fun about a big red bus that had been transformed into a zeppelin and a group of kids who spent their hols on sunny creek (?) holiday park... the theme tune was the best "choof choof chugga chugga, choof choof chugga chugga, choof choof chugga chugga poop poop". There was some kind of bad guy (like an evil count), who had a short stocky man in chauffeur gear driving him around... they had a weird man working for them called "Dingle" who was in touch with one of the lads from the red bus (A blond haired lad who always had a black t-shirt on)... in the one episode I have, Dingle is getting him to spy on the professor and make him take various photos of the interior of the zeppelin. Bring it out on DVD please! :-) If anyone else remembers this programme, please post here and share the memory... this was a brilliant series.
