8 reasons we're glad Don Conroy is back in our lives

He’s set to make an appearance in the third season on Moone Boy.

IN THE 80s, there were few people who delighted children as much as Don Conroy.

Not only did he know how to get on with Zig and Zag on the Den, he also showed us how to draw like a boss.

So, obviously, the nations hearts leapt when Chris O’Dowd indicated over the weekend that Don himself would be making an appearance in the third season of Moone Boy.

We need him back in our lives, and here’s why:

We’ve missed his lovely happy face

He could wear a good jumper like no one else

We could do with a reminder of how to love nature

Owls are very fashionable these days, and no one loves owls like our Don


Our drawing skills have gone seriously downhill of late

Only Don can help.

We’ve been getting pangs of jealousy any time we’ve heard of a Don sighting

Dustin won’t stop going on about how much he misses him

He was the only person who treated Dustin, Socky, Zig and Zag like equals, after all.

Our Cartoon Fun with Don Conroy books just aren’t sufficient anymore


Hooray for Don!  We’re delighted to have you back.
