I grew up watching The Riddlers and I loved it. I used to watch it before I started primary school and then when I came home from school when I was older. I just watched an episode on youtube and have to say that I still think it's awesome. The theme tune is one that has stayed with me since childhood and the content is great because it is all about teaching children morals and life lessons. For example, there is a story about a fox being trapped in a well. It tells another animal the water in the well is the best in the world so it should jump down for a drink. The fox then stands on the other animal's back and is free leaving the other stuck in the well. This sends the message that you should think before you act. Shows today don't have morals and require no thought. They don't teach children anything. The Riddlers encouraged children to think for themselves. The puppets are not beautiful and so some people claim they are frightening. I think it's better that kids see things that aren't always superficially good-looking and besides they are puppets, you are not supposed to fancy them. For all those who disagree and think that the show isn't fit for watching due to their appearance, do you watch Emmerdale? Ever wondered what happened to Mossop? Andy Sugden can tell you...
