Lovely trip down memory lane.

I think the cardboard scenery had a fun charm to it. I've got my Grudge of Drong scenery on my shelf as I type. I found that carefully colouring the white edges of the cardboard made a massive difference - it transforms them into something that looks more solid and, well, not made out of cardboard.

I've often wondered if a light spray of matt varnish would also take that cardboardy shine off them, but I never had the courage to try it out for fear of warping them.
