Do you ever lie awake at night, wondering whether the Snorkmaiden was having an affair with Moomin Papa? Have you ever drunk a bit too much, and started an argument about Button Moon? Does Noesybonk from Jigsaw still haunt your nightmares? Do you find yourself drifting off during boring business meetings, trying to remember the names of all the Flumps? If so, this book is for you. The Encyclopaedia of Cult Children's TV will take you back to a better age. It will take you on a journey back to Chigley, to Moominvalley, to Toytown, high above the streets and houses, where it was all so honest and simple. Where it was perfectly ordinary for a camp man in dungarees, a big woolly bear, a fey pink hippo and a bitchy zipped-up gimp to get in bed with each other and sing a song...
