Customer Review

on March 30, 2007
Tonight my four-year-old son watched three episodes of Bagpuss on DVD. I had tried to get him to watch this last year, but he wasn't interested. This time, he was enchanted. Thank goodness I now know that there's nothing wrong with him!

Bagpuss is quite possibly the best children's TV programme ever made. There's something magical about it. Some of the animation looks quite basic nowadays, but it doesn't harm the show at all. The sheer escapism, not to mention the intelligent respect for the viewers (contrast much of the current cBeebies output), and the beautiful smallness of it all are probably the key ingredients. It is utterly timeless, and universally appealing to younger children.

I don't know whether Oliver Postgate and his associates ever won an award for this little piece of wonder, but they really should have.
