Fun Factory, Oh my god. I live and grew up in the Netherlands, but this is what I watched as a toddler. It is what taught me basic English before I could read and write - cartoons. I absolutely detest that nowadays all cartoons are dubbed over with horrible screaming Dutch voice actors.

When I was very little, one day I got up to watch the cartoons on Fun Factory (actually I did that every day). A few moments later I was at my mum's bedside because the TV didn't work. She informed me that it was a "little" early for the TV to work, it was like 5:30AM and the program didn't start until like 7AM local time. She told me to go back to bed and sleep more. So of course every 30 minutes or so I was back at her bedside asking "Is it time yet?" - I couldn't read nor read time so all I could do was ask.

She tells that little anecdote at least every few months so I don't forget I did that to her as a child.

Wow, there is actually a youtube channel dedicated to fun factory. Happy memories!

In Australia, we also had Sky Channel. But it was a channel dedicated to horse racing, commonly seen at pubs. A few of these pubs were actually caught pirating Sky Channel by using dodgy cards!
