"In The Night Garden" Axed

NooNoo's favourite viewing will be no more. Alas and alack!

The BBC has confirmed that it's not going to commission any new episodes of In The Night Garden. Iggle Piggle, Upsy Daisy and the Tombliboos will have no new adventures. Boo!

You know, I never knew that the thing was narrated by Derek Jacobi (whom we shall be seeing in April as King Lear, a minor difference to singing something along the lines of "Yes, my name is Igglepiggle, Igglepiggle-niggle-wiggle-diggle!") Well, we've all got to make a living, haven't we?

So, sad news for stoners, students and toddlers everywhere. Mind you, there's 114 of the miniature masterpieces already in existence and I guess they'll be endlessly looped on kiddies channels for the next fifty years.

You can read the whole story here if you're so inclined.

Whatever happened to Stoppit and Tidyup, a fond memory of my own long gone stoner days?
