This is for all you who remember this great old cat my tribute to a great cat and all the people who sat glued to the tv when Bagpuss came on those were the days good old cartoons
inspired by Mary Hopkins those were the days my friend and bagpuss
Bagpuss was one of the best of the really good childrens TV programmes in the UK in the 1970s. Made by Oliver Postgate (credits to him)
Once upon a time,
Not so long ago,
There was a little girl and her name was Emily.
And she had a shop.
There it is.
It was a rather unusual shop because it didn’t sell anything.
You see, everything in that shop was a thing that somebody had once lost,
And Emily had found,
And brought home to Bagpuss.
Emily’s cat Bagpuss.
The most important,
The most beautiful,
The most magical,
Saggy old cloth cat in the whole wide world.
Well now, one day Emily found a thing.
She brought it back to the shop,
And put it down in front of Bagpuss,
Who was in the shop window fast asleep as usual.
But then Emily said some magic words.
