Tick all that apply
Tottie: the story of a dolls' house
I don't know what you are talking about
Also, the truth about the moon landings.
I didn't tick The Clangers or Ivor the Engine because I didn't see them until recently. So I took the implied question to relate to childhood memories.
I thought I'd leave it up to the individual. I answered as 'used to watch regularly'

I answered as "Really liked and would happily watch again any time".
It was tough picking just one favourite character.

I've heard of a couple of these, but to the best of my knowledge they never got over here...
They were so delightful on a Sunday evening by the fire
I forgot to add my favourite character! That would definitely be Professor Yaffle, the Carved Wooden Bookend in the Shape of a Woodpecker. Yes.
I love the way people have the right icons for all types of comment

Talking of characters, let's not forget Olaf the Lofty, voiced by one M Keating...
Vila was Olaf the Lofty? Fabulous. Thanks for telling me.
NO. You're kidding. Seriously? I thought Oliver Postgate did all the voices!

He did, on TV. But I know MK played Olaf somewhere, and I can only think it was in one of the stage productions (Birmingham Rep and London, IIRC)
I really need an Olaf the Lofty icon - it was so hard to choose! I think I'd rather choose one from each series. I really liked the dragon lady from Ivor the Engine, and I loved the Iron Chicken from the Clangers.
Iron chicken, soup dragon, Nogbad the Bad, it's just impossible to choose,
I forgot about Nogbad! How could I?! He's my favourite too! I also like the bad-tempered wizard in the land of silver sand, and his sycophantic genie.
