I Found this series creepy and disturbing

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-organ, who would turn into a carved relief on the front of the organ. That was really creepy. I hated it. It scared me. I liked Professor Yaffle, but he always turned into a lifeless old book-end at the end of every story. *shivers down spine*

And what about 'unseen' Emily? Without her character nothing new could arrive, but she never actually appeared. Again, CREEPY.

Did anyone else think it was scary/dark/creepy/morbid???

I personally loved the Bagpuss and grew up watching it. I have very fond memories of it and as a child always cried at the end when the narrator said about Bagpuss just being a saggy old cloth cat.
