Did God pop him off his finger and crumple him up though?

I read that in the 60-70s the kids TV corridor of the BBC continually stank of the constant joints they were all smoking. David Attenborough once complained when he made a visit whilst boss of BBC2, but only to ask them to open a window or go outside to smoke.

Famously he did that when Bob Marley and the Wailers recorded a session for Whistle Test, as recounted by Whispering Bob.

That explains a lot.

I have a great mental picture of Rick Jones, Julie Covington and Toni Arthur sharing a giant doob in the light store between recordings of Playaway.

There used to be a no doubt entirely baseless rumour about this guy. I remember someone at university going 'Yoffy lifts a finger' and then imitating the sound of a police siren.

From 20 years ago when channel 4 did programmes based on polls of greatest tv programmes.

He drowned fingermouse

Rick Jones, who presented and operated the puppets on Fingerbobs, came clean about having "drowned" the mouse.

"We'd done the last shot of the second series and I didn't want there to be a third series believe me - two years under that table was enough," said Jones.

"I conspired with the cameraman to keep the camera rolling. I took the mouse and dumped him in my cold cup of coffee - and drowned him"

TBH I'm very surprised he was still alive. Another part of Agaliarept's (very early) childhood goes to dust.

RIP mouse man.

You (genuinely) don't want to know about Hammy Hamster.
