Sarah and Tim learn the Green Cross Code

Green Cross Code

One of the most enduring memories I have from watching TV in my childhood is of the Green Cross Code and the many, many commercials that I was subjected to with advice for crossing the roads of Britain.

This isn’t a bad thing though, the lessons learned from those early years are still with me, and continue to be passed along to my children, even though the green cross code is no longer in active service. Some of the commercials were really very good, especially the animated Green Cross Code man, at around the 3 minute mark in the video below.

Stop. Look. Listen. Think! Fellow Retroist, VicSage, has posted previously about Darth Vadar’s stint as the Green Cross Code man and a few years later SuperTed took on the same mantle, which I wrote about here.
