"Lift Off" is a very unusually colourful Australian kid's show. Based in an apartment complex somewhere in Sydney, "But who can say just where it is?"(From the memorable and catchy theme song), the show mixes live action and puppetry to form a truly unique experience. As if childhood wasn't wacky enough this show really messed with your psyche. The kids (and adults) wore overly colourful and frilly outfits and even had their own lingo. There were bizarre creatures lurking in every corner, such as a plant with one eyeball and a camera wielding frilled-neck lizard. There was a crazy puppet café from another dimension equipped with outlandish characters and much, much more. I'm not sure if this show was educational or not, there were clichéd lessons filtered into the mad story lines, but that didn't matter because I had such a ball watching it.
