Tweets Of The Week

Who’s been falling in an out of love with Bagpuss this week?

Having a toddler in your family does mean you can legitimately get out those old kiddie telly programmes you loved when you were their age for a nostalgic wallow. Bagpuss is seemingly never off Simon Pegg's ( ) LCD these days: “Rewatching season 1 of Bagpuss ,” he Tweeted. “Professor Yaffle’s incessant negativism is maddening. I'm surprised they didn’t freeze him out of the group.” A few hours later he continued, “ Bagpuss ran for 6 seasons & caused fan controversy when the S6 finale failed to answer how Bagpuss could mend things by telling stories.” And then finally: “Professor Yaffle auditioned for the role of Bubo the clockwork bird in the original Clash of the Titans but was considered a bit wooden.” We have checked and that last statement is 100% untrue, readers.

So, what else have our esteemed gaggle of SF Twitterers been up to?
