Hello from south Wales UK, I've always had fond memories of Follyfoot I must have been about 10 when it was first aired. By chance a few months ago I found a clip on you tube, that was it then I was on you tube all night just looking at all the clips of Follyfoot. I must say there are some amazing clips there too, well done to everyone that put them on. The 70's were a great time, I think, some good memories. Dora how gorgeous was she, sorry Gillian but its true. I was always determined to have a girlfriend like Dora as I grew up but sadly that never happened, if my wife only knew what I was writing on the forum she'd kill me.
The 40th anniversary, I was a bit disappointed I never knew about that until it was too late, never mind maybe I'll see the 50th. Its nice to see there are other people who still love and remember Follyfoot

 Hi Tony, great to have you with us. I felt the same way about Steve too  >30< I think a large percentage of fans on here would agree too, and yes I agree the 70s were a very special time.  >41<

Thank you everyone for the kind wishes yep the beers are definitely on me.  >41<  Brilliant website I've already been on the gallery dreaming. Whens the next anniversary? what a feeling that must have been to have been in the same room and actually speaking to the two main stars. 40 years ago when I was sat in front of our black and white television watching Follyfoot I would have never dreamt in a million years I would have been able to speak to Dora in person, sorry I mean Gillian, that must have been quite impressive. Again thank you everyone and hope to speak with you all soon.  Tony.
