Mary, Mungo and Midge

DO YOU live in a town? Mary (human) Mungo (dog) and Midge (piccolo-playing mouse) did. Each week they left the flat and checked out some urban goings-on, from building site to street market. Newsreader RICHARD BAKER narrated. Manipulated cut-out live “animation” courtesy John Ryan Studios (see also CAPTAIN PUGWASH). Closing credits (it was fun right to the end!) elaborately held up over a set of building blocks by Midge.

    John Ryan’s studios had the foresight to shoot this on colour 35mm film stock, which means it still looks lovely to this day.
