Some sources show it as "Tag", others as "Tige", and others still as "Tyge"............all are acceptable.

I am not sure of 8, Lucky. You say the Title Character and then you show the answer of FYI. I remember this series, but can't place it.

A bit of a related funny. Last night I watched one of my taped episodes of Ace of Cakes and it was the final one - they did a cake for, and spoofed all the way through the show, BACK TO THE FUTURE!!! I would have got that anyway but it was very fresh in my mind! The cake was for the 25th anniversary of the original film and Michael J Fox, Leah Thompson and Christopher LLoyd were there and blown away by the cake!

Oh, Alix I loved them too. I had 3 of their albums (yes ALBUMS) but all 200 of them were destroyed in our flood 2 years ago. You got to meet them? I am jealous!!! I also loved the two Eddie and the Cruisers movies they were in and two of my albums were the soundtracks!

I loved Eddie and the Cruisers too! And I met them when they opened for Foreigner here. I was part of the choir that sang with Foreigner so I got to meet them too! It was a red letter day. John Cafferty was just as cute as he looked on TV! Shorter though.
