Yak, The

RATHER SURPRISINGLY well-done cartoon (though very low-fi) series about a Yak and his friend Crow who had various unlikely adventures. We recall the poignant farewell episode (surely a staple of childrens’s series – often much more “downbeat” than an adult series would have allowed?) where Yak left to return home, on his own, without friends or help.

    I used to love Yak as a kid- possibly one of the most melancholy shows ever produced for kiddies ( can still hum the somewhat sad theme tune even now). They were based on books by old English actor Donald Bissett. Would love to see it again even though I’m knocking 50.
