Fingerbobs

A classic 70s childrens TV program, Fingerbobs was a low-budget finger puppet show hosted by the rather frightening Yoffy.

Yoffy would sit in a sparsely furnished studio wearing a neckscarf and cotton gloves and would strap on a paper finger puppet to tell a story.

Finger Mouse was probably the best remembered fingerbob and actually had his own spin off TV series in the 80s called, er... Finger Mouse.
