Children in Need Single 2009

Love Peter Kay's Children in Need Single for 2009.

They created the video with five decades of children's telly characters. See if you can see your favourite from when you were little. They're mostly BBC characters but a few are from other places too.

Caught a glimpse of Bagpuss my daughter's favourite, Peppa Pig, my grand daughter's obsession at the moment and I even saw mine in glorious black and white, Muffin the Mule!

The Google Ads get on your nerves but at least you can close them down.

It was really interesting watching how the video was made here on the BBC's Pudsey website.

  1. This is sweet! I don't know too many of them, but I adore Paddington Bear and even have a couple of hard-cover copies of the books in my collection.
    Thanks for sharing this.

  2. I like Paddington Bear very much.

  3. I bought the is a good cause and a once in a lifetime occurance: apparantly it took two years to get all the different copyrite holders to agre etc. First class: well worth all the work and may it raise loads of money!

  4. It's a Live Aid of cartoon characters! I love the Michael Jackson glove.

  5. You know, I am 46 and still love cartoons like a kid. They bring so many memories. And this video is superb. Some characters I remember but most of all the music, the animation and the light is beautiful. Thanks. It's been a nice moment.

  6. I didn't see any that I knew but then I would not have known them if they were from over here. My kids might.

  7. Dear Winifred ~~ Only one I knew was
    Paddington Bear, but then I'm in
    Thanks for your comment and I am glad you liked the photos.
    Take great care, Love, Merle.

My Singer 338!

Well here it is my very first sewing machine, the one I got for my 21st birthday in 1966! I know it cost my Mam  a lot to buy it for me...
