TV MEME - Day 13

Day 13 - Favorite childhood show

I was going to just link you to something like Thunderbirds, or Top Cat ... both of which, among others, I loved .... But decided I would link you to a show that I loved, and even if you think I am totally weird do listen to the first couple of minutes of the You Tube as it has, IMHO, the best ever signature tune for a TV series.

Would love to know if any others out there ever got as hooked on it as I did!

Wikepedia describes the series :-

"The Flashing Blade (Le Chevalier Tempête) is a French television serial made in the late 1960s, which was broadcast in the UK on BBC children's television during the 1960s, with several re-runs in the 1970s.

Dubbed from French into English, the action was set in 17th century France, during the War of the Mantuan Succession (1628–1631) between France and Spain and its allies including the Duchy of Savoy. The series of 12 episodes of 22 minutes each, cut from the original four 75-minute episodes[1] involved the besieged French garrison in the city of Casale, which was the capital of Montferrat on the Savoie (Savoy) border. Charles Emmanuel I, Duke of Savoy laid siege to Casale but was defeated by French troops on 18 March 1629. The series revolves around the efforts of a dashing spy to engineer the garrison's rescue."

This is part one of three!
