hi this is my second series that I can't find:-

It was on television during the day in a year between 1982 and 1984. I vaguely remember that it was in similar slots to Mighty Mouse, so it might originally have been from an earlier decade. We were in the Eastern TV region and got Channel 4 really late so chances are this was either BBC or ITV.

Episodes were short, 5-10 minutes. The main character was quite distinctive - she had purple[?] hair in a perm that projected out either side of her head - and a grey spacesuit with padded arms that looked (to my two-year-old self) exactly like what happens when you wear two woolly jumpers one over the other. I believe she was called "Space Princess" something or other, which might also have been the title of the show.

I think her space suit's helmet had some sort of comical adaptation for her hairstyle. It would have needed to be wider at the sides. I think she had a space rocket and visited a new planet each episode. It ran for a while but I think only during 1 year so maybe a single 13 episode run. From what I remember the production values were vaguely comparable with things like Jamie and the Magic Torch or Mr Benn. The backgrounds in this show were very minimal, and might have just been white.

I think the main character might have been the only persistent character - the show had a slightly surreal, lonely, dreamy feel to it. What reminded me about it more recently was the Blueberry Garden video game.
