Mid-1980s TV & Superheroes in the UK

I've tried Google and Wikipedia on this but I don't think I'm wording the search quite right, so I'm hoping you all can help me. Questions relate to a story about a seven or eight year-old boy in 1984 or 1985.

1. Was Superman still a big figure for kids then, or was there someone else who was more popular? I'm talking about the kind of superhero character where kids want pyjamas of the superhero costumes.

2. What sort of shows were on on a typical Saturday evening? I first thought of The Generation Game but that wasn't on between 1981 and 1990. Would there have been cartoons (such as Tom & Jerry) on?

Thank you!

Edit: Sorry, I meant to say, this is in the UK! Have edited title to state this.

Edit 2: The first question has been answered, thank you! :)

Edit 3: Second question has been answered as well, thank you!
