Twinsen Hi and Waybuloo

I've been a frequent visitor to this site as a guest for many years (and at one time, a member under the name 'darklord'). I mostly check it out for any news about LBA3. As with most of you, the LBA series remain among my favourite games of all time (Along with the Oliver Twins' 'Dizzy' series, FFVII and Draken on the PC). However, one morning last year, I awoke to find I was 31 years old, married and with a with a baby on the way. I came to a decision to sell my remaining collection of games, which I did (these included Copies of LBA1 + 2 for PC, and LBA1 for PS1) I also came to the sad conclusion that sadly LBA3 will never, ever be. That is of course my opinion, which you may or may not agree with.

Anyway, the reason for me signing up is to do with the aforementioned baby - she's 1 this month, and obviously, our TV is now permanently programmed into the CEEBEEIES channel (UK BBC run childrens TV for the under 6's for those not from the UK). Anyway, I was sitting there yesterday watching a programme called WAYBULOO (kind of another Teletubbies clone) with my daughter, and I was suddenly struck with how similar the music (or at least the style of music) was to the LBA games. So much so, that whilst I was silently thinking of this, my wife (who is not into computer games at all) said to me 'Doesn't that music sound like Twinsen?'. Weird. I tried looking it up, but couldn't find the composer of the music. I wondered if it mught be the same person who did the LBA Music. If any of you get the chance, or have children of your own - check it out.

Anyway, as a direct result of the memories it stirred, I'm off to hunt Ebay for LBA1 and 2 and to devolve into a teenager again...

That's why LBA is very popular among the planet without people even knowing it

Everyone's being brainwashed.
here's the BBC iPlayer link:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/cbeebie..._Toks_Naracar/

Still don;t know if it's the same composer, although more likely whoever wrote it was inspired by LBA (or it could just be a coincidence).

Oh, and yes - you DO have to sit through the whole 20 minutes to get a 'feel' for what I'm saying.

That's a long time to wait for just a feel...
