Event id #3035 : Kids TV Show Music Compo

I'm surprised by the few contributions to this compo!
I had a million ideas, maybe that say more about me and my mindset... ;-)

Or maybe everyone is waiting to the last minute?

I think it has more to do with
1. My lack of status in the C64 community
2. Lack of the expected multiple thousand euro price... (just kidding!)

Anyway, some entires now at least, very fun.

Although I was more going for _contemporary_ kids shows that my kids watch currently, but classics are fun also...

I extended the deadline 2 weeks since several people seems to have been a bit late to the party :)

Think people got more excited about the old stuff as we're all love a trip down memory lane, but nevertheless some great releases coming through šŸ˜ƒ

daddy-approved, thanks :)

Weeks ago, I thought hitting the deadline should be easy but there's been BCC in late Feb and then in March a lot to do in house and garden popped up, kindergarten opened, shut again (lockdown)... and suddenly finishing my 60% done tune on time seemed rather stressful.

Just btw, regarding online standalone compos and deadlines: I don't think vast time ranges are a good idea in general. For once, people (especially older or confused ones) tend to think "Great, let's do this, sometime later!" and then forget about it till it's too late. What is more, in some demo compos I felt after half the deadline has passed: "Hmh, know everything I could contribute, seems done" and thus, had no more motivation. So I'd go for announcing(!) the compo 2 weeks before it stars and then(!) let it run for 2 weeks, also to prevent the feeling, there's always a dozen things running at the same time. And as weekends provide most nerding time for most of us, pretty please, set it to Sun 23:59:59, never Fri ^^ Real parties (time table etc.) are a different story. Changing deadlines while compo is running can(!) annoy people who did there best to deliver whatever they got finished within the original deadline. I don't think it's the case here, just saying/sharing experience.

BTT: Having seen and appreciated the extra-time, I delayed finishing to next week's nights. I hereby promise to deliver whatever version I get done within the new deadline!
