TV and FILM make up games of the 70s and 80s

Back in the 70s / Early 80 

When the evenings got lighter on a Friday after tea, my friends and I used to go the local park or common and pretend play 'make up games' based on TV and Films of the time... 

Starsky and Hutch was a favourite.

We'd hide down the river ditch to evade the enemy - pretend to catch the bad guys.

One of us used to borrow our big brothers long (way too big for us) wooly jumper like Starsky running around (thinking we were actually him! - but looking just like a kid wearing a jumble sale jumper!)

Sometime our sister would play Charlies Angels - with a cardboard walkie talkie she'd run around pretending to talk to it - crazy but fun!

We also had a mate who'd play Freddie Krueger with plastic knives on their mums glove - chase us around the mad kid!! He's quite normal now...strangely enough!!
