The Telebugs are ready for action

Telebugs

Meet C.H.I.P. (Coordinated Hexadecimal Information Processor), S.A.M.A.N.T.H.A. (Solar Activated Micro Automated Non-inTerference Hearing Apparatus) and B.U.G. (Binary Unmanned Gamma camera) – the Telebugs – in this first episode of the mid to late 80’s British TV show.

I was 8 years old when this show first aired and for a long time I was hooked on the Telebugs. I probably watched most of the 86 five-minute episodes produced and I owned a set of plastic figures. When I mention the Telebugs to my friends, none of them remember the show, only the plastic figures which I never let them play with.

Despite my love for the show, I didn’t know, until now, that a board game was created!

Thankfully, there are others out there who remember the show. Some are even inspired to create Cubecraft Cut-outs of the characters…
