Once upon a time, not so long ago, there was a children's TV show called Bagpuss. Today, the much-loved pink and white striped turns 40, with four decades passing since the first episode aired on BBC One. Despite being a TV icon, Bagpuss actually only ran four three months though, ending on 7 May 1974 after 13 episodes.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Bagpuss, he has been reunited with the actress who played his child owner in the series. Emily Firmin, 48, was allowed a cuddle with her pink and white friend at the museum where he is kept. ‘I can barely believe it’s been 40 years since I sat in that old Victorian outfit and posed with him,’ she said. ‘I’m delighted he’s still as popular today as he ever was.

We have 5 new limited edition lino cuts featuring Bagpuss and friends by Peter Firmin available in the gallery....read on...
