Pipkins

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

A neurotic hare called Hartley, a childlike monkey called Topov, an operatic ostrich diva called Octavia and a Brummie pig called, imaginatively, 'Pig' living together in some kind of shop.

It was always manic until a deep voice would say "It's time for......" and then we'd get a story. TOP STUFF!

    I was glad when it was cancelled. I thought it was the most useless children's programme ever!

    What was the morose tortoise called? He always seemed extremely depressed and pessimistic. The main memory I have of him was an episode where someone was blowing bubbles, and as they floated past him, he shouted "Bombadillos!" and hid in his shell.

    LOL I remember this - it was on at 12.10 every weekday, just after Crown Court. I remember Pig always saying "Moi name's Pig an' Oi'm 'ungry!" in that accent that began as Scouse and finished as Brummy, taking in a bit of Newcastle and Derbyshire on the way!!
