Pogles, The/Pogles’ Wood

Horny-handed tons of soilDIRT-CHEAP PUPPETRY filmed in the dirt and on the cheap in OLIVER POSTGATE’s back garden. Titchy fairy-type people who lived in a tree stump had titchy adventures. Head of the family was no-known-first-name Mr Pogle; doing the dishes was Mrs Pogle; running amok was son Pippin; gibbering in a faintly Japanese accent was pet squirrel Tog. Collective efforts mostly directed at supervising the wellbeing of a nearby bean plant. Tree stump grew faster than the storylines.

    Wasn’t there a rose that drank elderberry wine? Or am I completely insane?

    Was this repeated ? Otherwise I’m amazed that I can remember something from when I was 2.
