Hi 2uesday

Classic TV it was indeed. I loved Mr Benn too

ah the Clangers, the soup dragon. Bet the Moomins did n't like it cause they were not invited and neither was Bag Puss or the mouse. You can see - I used to watch telly with the kids instead of doing the housework. Thank you for a trip down memory lane.
