our household has gone down with worst winter cold in history.
4 year old daughter, who has been suffering from horrendous cough and not eating (never a good sign), decided we had to move to sofa and let SWMBO sleep some more.
So, TV of choice by daughter - THE CLANGERS, Series 2 on dvd which was bought as a bit of nostalgia and insight for my wife who missed them first time around.
Well daughter loves them, as well as Soup Dragon, Iron Chicken, Froglets, blue string pudding, copper pipe trees, politically correct flags with stars and stripes and hammer and sickle, sky moos etc etc.
Created in '60s, inspired by........................
CGI definitely not required.
