Pogles’ Wood

And now for something completely different: a piece of pure nostalgia. I remember watching Pogles’ Wood when I was a little boy. I wonder if any of my readers are old enough to remember Pippin, Tog and the Pogles? Here is an episode, called Honey Bees, which will bring it all back…

P.S. Should it be Pogles Wood, Pogle’s Wood or Pogles’ Wood?

    Now that takes me back more than a few years. I was also an avid watcher of “The Herbs” (I’m Dill….I’m Dill the dog), “The Wombles”,
    and “The Clangers” as well as “Captain Pugwash” and other children’s programs of dubious repute. I show clips of these to my (American) wife, and she can’t figure out if the English are a nation of creative geniuses, or that we’re just plain off our rockers!

      The Clangers have recently been remade…

    • If you were watching Captain Pugwash in the mid-1970s it was already a remake. The original series was black and white, with cardboard cutouts, and dates from the late 1950s and 1960s. Unfortunately I am not sure that any clips of this remain.

    My favourite from that era was the Wooden Tops, especially Spotty Dog, the biggest spotty dog you ever did see….

    Well of course children’s BBC had gone to the dogs by the mid 1960s….. If you want true class you need to go back 5-10 years: Rag, Tag & Bobtail, or Bill & Ben the Flowerpot Men.

    But all that well-meaning received-pronunciation niceness was a world away from this, which is what really sticks in my mind from those days:

  4. I still love watching Pogles’ Wood ^_^
