I loved Bagpuss as a child and still like watching the DVD to this day. Favourite stories / episodes were The Mouse Mill ( that made chocolate biscuits out of breadcrumbs and butterbeans) and The Old Man Of Ling-Po ( the one with the turtles).
I know loads of people were really fond of this series but I just don't get it. To me it was spooky, dark, and the endings were quite scary and upsetting.
At the end of each episode all the characters went back to being lifeless.
The scariest ones were the mice on the mouse...
