Happy 40th Bagpuss/OMG I'm So Old

I have Twitter to thank for the news that today marks the 40th anniversary of the first showing of Bagpuss. It was already into repeats when I watched it, thank you so much, and is among the first TV programmes I can remember watching avidly.

I'm not even going to try to explain Bagpuss. Either you were there, and you get it, or you weren't, and you don't. But part of me still hopes I will find Emily's shop some day.

And I challenge anyone who remembers the catpuss fondly to remain dry-eyed through this news item in which Baggers gets a birthday cuddle from Emily.
