Time



Too late now we say thank you to Oliver Postgate, for all the stories, for making such a good cat with Bagpuss, for being so brave as to swim against the current and stand up for what you believed. You filled many childhoods with peace and colour and laughter. What could be better than that.

Hi there, thanks for you comment on my Blog. If you like cats, you should check out www.monkeyandsofia.blogspot.com... they make gorgeous things, and are very into their cats.

Oh, Jackie! Thankyou for this. I didn't know until now.
Such a lovely legacy of stories and inspiration he left.

A great shame, even at 83 he's a loss to us. I still remember, Bagpuss (he was a baggy, saggy cloth cat and Emily loved him), Noggin the Nog (and Graculus), Ivor the Engine, the Clangers and didn't he do the Herb Garden too?

Goodnight Oliver, all your dreams live after you.

We will have to do some reading now. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. The wee ones would love such tales. Sounds like a wonderful person indeed.

It is very sad to say goodbye to such a talented man who swam against the mainstream.
His work with with Peter Firmin has had such a influence on me.

We didn't know about him. He is on our wishlist. It is always sad when good people leave forever.

It is a sad loss, but what gifts he gave to so many. Our Mum met him once in the course of her work, he was humble but had a cheeky, friendly manner to him. He also made an excellent cup of tea.
