    Question Been bugging me for YEARS!

    Hi Guys,

    Reading through these, I'm surprised us folks over 30(ish) aren't all gibbering wrecks! The TV shows we had as kids were all as scary as hell!! Even the so called "cute" characters were kind of creepy - a prime example being Hartley Hare. He was constructed from some kind of terrifying coconut matting type stuff and had a murderous look in his eye...

    Anyway here's one for you. A kids TV show in the 70's. Can't remember what is was about, but the beginning part had kind of pointy shadow puppets - black cut out figures against a light (pale blue?) background. My sister keeps asking me and it's driving us bonkers!!

    Don't know if it's right but Twigwidge sprang to mind. It's one of the few that's not on the tube so can't say for definite.

    I'd love to see an episode of 'Pipkins'...I loved it. Was there a clock on it that would chime and a deep voice would say 'it's time........for a story'? (or a song or whatever).
