Almond Mars bar? As it happens, the American version contains almonds, and the British one is called Milky Way (our Milky Ways are called 3 Musketeers there). So the joke won't have been so funny when The Thin Blue Line was shown in the States! :lol:

Don't remember that Skips packaging. I was only a baby at the time! You mention a "cheesy" computer game, that makes me think of Pushover, which was a Quavers tie-in. But the one you're actually referring to is Action Biker. Both mascots are caled Colin, strangely enough (Colin Curly was the Quavers one).
