Personally, a lot of the series mentioned are when I was a teenager and was far too interested doing other stuff.  But favourites of mine are:
Noggin the Nog (same as Ivor the engine)
The Flashing Blades (Saturday morning TV badly dubbed)
In Scotland we used to have a show called Glen Micheals Cavalcade that used to show lots of cartoons on a sunday afternoon.  That was aslo pretty good.

Gotta agree there, these young wippersnappers,

The Flashing Blade, personally I hold that responsible for the PollTax rebellion,

Glen Micheal, Pallidin and Rusty? I remember thinking 'GET OFF and put more cartoons on ya old bar Steward'.

But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

Agree with Ulysseus 31, Star Fleet, Chocky and the majority of whats already been said and I'll raise you a 'Hartbeat' (Tony Hart of course), Morph, The Flumps, Jamie and the Magic Torch, Spiderman, Stig of the Dump and Dramarama...

It is compulsory in discussions of this nature for someone to say this:

Catweazle!

(Ah, jumpers for goalposts....isn't it? etc...)

Ahh, The Flumps.Did anyone else wave goodbye to them at the end of the credits? That was a great programme.I'll raise you The Box of Delights,Marmalade Atkins,and the original Roland Rat Show.
But the best kids TV show was Playschool.
