Anyone for Clangers?

After our visit to the Imperial War Museum in Manchester, My sister, her husband and I went down to the Lowry gallery - which had of course lots of LS Lowry paintings, and a fun exhibition of Childrens TV programmes called Heres one we made earlier

I took some pictures, of course!

As we were passing the BBC...
I looked left and saw...Daleks! 
 Not only that, my favourite 'Christopher Eccleston' era ones!
 'Daleks conquer and destroy!'
 'Ere, who nicked my sucker?
 Me - next to a dalek - for scale, I am 5 foot 11 inches tall!
And of course, opposite, was a Tardis!- it was amusing having my sister with me as she is a GP, so we had the doctor and the Tardis!

 On to the gallery- the first Kids TV hero, Muffin the mule!

Basil Brush
 And from 'The Clangers'- The Soup Dragon!
The Froglets - and the top hat they come from! 
Major Clanger and his wife. 
The Iron Chicken 
Granny Clanger 
Small Clanger in the music boat, and Tiny Clanger. 

Bagpuss next, this is Madelaine the rag doll, with Charlie mouse.
 The mice on the 'Marvellous mechanical mouse organ'
Professor Yaffle, the woodpecker.
Bagpuss! - the saggy old cloth cat puss, saggy, and a bit loose at the seams!
Sorry - the picture of Gabriel the Toad didn't come out!

Some pictures of Noggin the Nog. 

Some 'Captain Pugwash' pictures, here is 'Cutthroat Jake'  
Tom the Cabin Boy, and the Captain. 


It certainly took me back to my childhood in the 60s and 70s!


  1. Very entertaining post! I remember Morph and Captain Pugwash very well :-)

    1. Thanks Paul, It was The Clangers and Bagpuss for me!
