Tinker and Taylor

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

Tinker and Taylor was a Saturday morning programme for children. It was shown by ATV, and it was introduced by Alan Taylor and his glove puppet called Tinker. It had all sorts of things going on, especially cartoons, and proved to be a great favourite with children in the 1960s.

    I remember this well as a child, similar format to the Banana Splits that came later in regard to the cartoons being showed in between, the difference was that Tinker was a glove puppet. It was the last thing on in the morning for children before a whole afternoon of sport I remember so we made sure to watch it! It was Alan Taylor's personality that made it watchable as it was with the Mr and Mrs quiz show.
