Clangers, Bagpuss & Co.

To the Museum of Childhood for a real childhood nostalgia fest in the shape of the exhibition - Clangers, Bagpuss and Co. Lots of happy memories came flooding back and it was wonderful to see the original puppets, animation cells and drawings for these charming animated classics created by Peter Firmin and Oliver Postgate for their company Smallfilms. How cute are the mice and their mouse-organ, and those knitted Clangers?!

Bagpuss - (above), "a saggy, old cloth cat, baggy, and a little bit loose at the seams, but Emily loved him".
