430 space shuttle

430 Space Shuttle (Chinese: 430穿梭機) is a children's show shown on TVB Jade in Hong Kong that aired from 1 February, 1982 until its final episode on 8 August, 1989. The name represents the show's starting time—4:30pm. This program aimed to educate children about astronomy or related topics with stories, songs, games and other adventures. It provided an opportunity for children to learn about different topics while being entertained at the same time.


The host of the programme was Cheung Kwok Keung aka "KK", with various supporting actress, as well as the "silver" monster "CoCo" and the robot hung on it called "LoBo". When the programme was broadcasting, many of the family in Hong Kong was still watching a Black-and-White TV and thought "CoCo" was a gold monster. Some children got disappointed when they saw the "ugly" silver body in Colour TV.

430 Space Shuttle was replaced in the early 1990s by Flash Fax, another educational children's show.

Among the show's former hosts are famous Hong Kong actors Stephen Chow and Tony Leung.


During 430 Space Shuttle, about 20 minutes was used to showcase a cartoon, these cartoons are adapted into Cantonese, and usually from Japanese Animation. The first Cartoon aired during this time is Doraemon.
