And Ivor puffs no more...

Wasn't the greatest thing about Oliver Postgate his voice? You could listen to the Clangers, Bagpuss, and Ivor the Engine without pictures. At least, I could. And let's face it, the animations do look as if they were knocked up in his garden shed. (They were! And they're none the worse for that.)

Oh, this is a sad day... he had such a brilliant voice. Missed this in the news. Garden shed, eh?! Can well believe it.

Well done, thank you.

The Clangers was the only science fiction that I could take at all seriously - thanks!

Thanks for your visit to my blog.

I learned about Bagpuss through my Birtish wife who grew up with the animation. And of course I loved it and when the time came both our children were introduced to Bagpuss, too. Apparently Oliver was something of a firebrand himself with leftwing leanings (which is fine by me). I would loved to know more about the man.

Greetings from London.

I love Br. English! So beautiful accent... Unfortunately, I hear American English more often than Br.

"And when Bagpuss goes to sleep, all his friends go to sleep."

Apparently, Oliver Postgate was a really nice bloke as well.
