And the award for weirdest cartoon of all time must go to Ludwig. A mechanical egg-shaped thing, who could open up panels in his shell and produce various items that would help him in his adventures. The program would start with him flying in a helicopter fashion, and featured classical background music - no doubt Beethoven. Foreign nonesense, that usually resulted in disappointment when you'd been waiting for the 5.35 pre-news cartoon.
Aah Ludwig - what the hell were you meant to be ?
