I've been looking for the old UK tape of this old show, and curiously came across two CIC Video internal reference tapes (complete with mock-up artwork and timecodes through out the video) for sale on ebay, which I bought. It's a cute little show made by Sunrise in 1975 and the English adaptation was made in Australia circa 1977 with people like Keith Scott (How Green Was My Cactus) doing the voices. Some info on the show can be found here.

Anyway, does anyone remember this show being screened on Australian TV and if there were any video releases of the show in Australia?

I used to watch it every morning. It was a cool little show. I distinctly remember it being called "the Adventures of Kum Kum", however? It was massive popular with me and several of my mates at the time. We used to talk about it constantly @ school.

Of course, we are talking 30 years ago, so... memory is foggy. I can't remember what I had for Breakfast this morning, but I can remember KumKum getting in trouble every week. hehe.

It was simillar to a version of Dennis the Menace that was on when I was a kid as well. And AstroBoy..and Kimba... and Battle of the Planets, and Princess Knight. etc etc etc...

My tapes do have "The Adventures of Kum Kum" on them, but the title card on the show itself has "Kum Kum" only. So it was played on TV in Australia then in the late 1970's. Thanks for the info HeDanny. You don't remember which channel screened it do you?
