I am loving this week’s Listography! It sent me spiralling happily down memory lane. I don’t recall watching that much TV in my youth, preferring to be buried in a Famous Five book, but I had a job wittling the list down to my top 5.
Bagpuss! I remember next to nothing about Bagpuss, but I know I watched him with great enjoyment. “Yaaaaawn” said Bagpuss. And weren’t there some creepy looking mice who lived on a shelf? How the hell did they get up there to make their perfectly round hole anyways?
Meep Meep! I loved this guy, and he seemed to be rarely featured in Loony Tunes. I bet he got bumped for that Tweety Pie, who even at a young age I found so irritating that I’d secretly pray that Sylvester would emerge victorious and eat the irksome little bugger.

1. Tom & Jerry
It can’t be anything other than Tom & Jerry. I remember when I was recuperating at home after surgery when I was 5, my Mum had made me an entire video tape (God that’s ageing. I bet it was bloody betamax too, not even VHS) of back to back Tom & Jerry cartoons. I love them to this day.
