With a 3d set and a 2d character, it'll be a sort of back-to-front Paddington Bear show...

I know but it's still not nice to see... It would be like a lime green bagpuss...

Yall peoples from over deh pond sure do talks funny. I just looked up bagpuss, on wiki ... what a ripoff of the Cheshire cat. Well I guess it is not a complete ripoff. While the Cheshire cat looks like he is spaced out on acid all the time, bagpuss looks like Cheshire's depressed morbidly obese alcoholic father, who is just one fat-cat joke away from suicide.

You need to watch Bagpuss, though - see how important those mice are.

(Professor Yaffel was an early career influence...)

Generally, if anybody can get hold of Oliver Postgate's autobiography (wiki link) , it's a really interesting read - he invented and built a lot of the equipment they used to make the Smallfilms animations.

Are the mice the ones that finally push him over the edge? But seriously, I'm torrenting the series right now. Its kinda creepy from the youtube preview I checked it out, but I will give it a few episode chance before I judge it.

Well I say different... bagpuss and the cheshire cat are very different, the'r similar appearances has much more to do with the unchecked cross breeding of amusingly coloured animals...

What time were you at the tower? I must have missed you by just a couple of hours or so, because I showed up a little after noon that Sunday.

Are we talking about something like Brokeback Robot, not that there's anything wrong with that... Do you have the announcer guy lined up to do the voiceover for your trailer?
