    Very sad and even sadder as the last month or so has seen many deaths.

    I can't believe this. He was one of my heroes. Met him a few times and he was just a lovely man.

    RIP Neil, I will be raising a glass to you tonight.

    Very sad news, I've not had much chance to sample his work but the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Bang & Rutland Weekend Television seem very good.

    It was interesting that The Raggy Dolls and Puddle Lane were both scheduled together on Thursday lunchtimes circa 1987-1988 by Yorkshire TV as Innes both narrated the Raggy Dolls and played the magician in Puddle Lane - now that has not happened before - the same person involved in both shows in that slot. I suppose that was my own exposure to Innes.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Also, it's interesting that we have lost two people who had appeared in the Yorkshire TV 12.10 pm Thursday children's TV shows in recent weeks - Neil Innes of Puddle Lane and Kenny Lynch also appeared in its predecessor Mooncat & Co as well.

    This was the worst news during the holidays. Neil Innes was one of my favorite people on this planet (at least I think he was from this planet). Up there with the time Gerry Anderson died at the same time of year.
