Pipkins: Volume 5
For a generation of schoolchildren who escaped from school at lunchtime for a dose of television there was one programme that stood head and shoulders above all others – Pipkins! Topov, Pig, Tortoise, Octavia the Ostrich and, of course, the irrepressible Hartley Hare spend their time helping out people, usually with unforeseen results!
Just as popular with adults as it was with children, Pipkins will appeal to anyone who bought other classic children’s television series such as Bagpuss, Willo the Wisp and The Clangers - as well as archive television fans.
It's that Hare again!
Friends, Pipkins, countrymen (and women – I'm talking to you, Mrs Muddle)... lend me your ears. What do you mean, mine are big enough already? I didn't come here to trade insults, you know...
Hark! For I, Hartley Hare, bring you tragic news... this is the very last volume of Pipkins there will ever be! After this, there are no more episodes left to release. None! Not a sausage! (Be quiet, Pig, I'm trying to be dramatic here!) This, friends, is our swansong... or, if you prefer, our hare song... pig song... tortoise song... well, you get the idea.
In this final volume you can find out what happened when I lost my beloved quill pen... or when I got too big for my dressing gown. Pig builds a bridge, Topov writes a letter and Peter can't stop coughing and sneezing. Ah, those were the days!
Your pal, Hartley Hare
