Another Childhood Icon Gone

Here's Humphrey company axed

A court has ordered the winding-up of an Adelaide production company which has made the long-running children's program Here's Humphrey.

Banksia Productions was taken to the South Australian Supreme Court over a reported $50,000 debt owed to Channel Nine.

Judge Robert Lunn made an order winding up Banksia Productions when no-one for the company turned up at the hearing.

The ruling could mark the end of the Here's Humphrey program, which first aired in 1965.

There goes another icon memory from my childhood! Sob! Whatever happened to Mister Doo-Bee as well? hahahaaa!

  1. It's always sad when this happens.

  2. If only someone would take out Barney!!!

  3. Nooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!! I wish I had kept the Humphrey cushion, and the Humphrey toys and the Humphrey quilt cover set now. They'd be worth a quid one day I bet.

    All seven of my kids watched that show, as did my nieces.

  4. Barney is evil, we all know that! hahahaaa.

  5. "What a funny old fellow is Humpfrey...he gets in all manner of strife..." oh no what is the world coming to. Ditch the Wiggles nefore Humpfrey.
