Post subject: Walting in the Sunshine once more. Reply with quote

With all the recent Walt talk and a few requests I dug him out of the wardrobe again for a summer sunshine airing and a few more pics.
5' tall original from 1979/80. How many of these are left? Does anyone else on here own one? I would love to know.
He is not going back in the wardrobe this time but into the loft with the rest of my mountain of 2 Tone stuff.

Marigold Only 13 Episodes were made Shocked I must have watched every programme 13 times. I always liked Professor Yaffle I wonder why ? Smile

Professor Yaffle, full name "Augustus Barclay Yaffle", the carved wooden book-end, is the brains of the outfit, or so he'd like to think. He is very knowledgeable, but a bit proud, and the mice love to play tricks on him to bring him down a peg or two.

Despite being a bit aloof, Yaffle can be touched by beauty, as he shows in "The Ballet Shoe", when he dances with the Marvellous Mechanical Prima Ballerina.

Yaffle is the most complex of the characters, and moves around more than most, being nailed to the floor with tacks to prevent him falling over.

Sugarman, applying your straight faced analysis of Bagpuss - pulls me in until ............ the part where someone's feet are nailed down to the floor Laughing Laughing

You dodged a bullet Paul, as after most of your posts - I check out your revelations - and JUST resisted posting a Bagpuss cover of Queens "We will rock you" all built around the big wooden mouse organ Confused

You have given me a very good evening - thanks Very Happy

Mary They Don't make em like they used to, as Bombscare quotes drugs were involved in the making of these programmes I feel faint just listening to the Theme Tune or maybe it's just this flu I have Smile

Mr Ben was seriously out there at times. Roobarb and Custard is just awesome.

I used to love Ivor the Engine also, but this is a topic I could talk about all day.

Pigeon Street anyone? Too cool for words, I love the theme to that Cool Laughing

And when WaltPuss goes to sleep, all of his friends go to sleep.

Buster and his bloodvessels
Winston and his Bazoomies
Rhoda and her Bodysnatchers.
