Fingerbobs: RIP Yoffy

In this edition of the podcast dedicated to remembering life as a child in 1970’s Britain and the part TV played in our lives, our host Oliver goes through some of the messages sent by listeners and puts right his error in omitting Roobarb from our 5 Minute Marvels episode. We also look back at Noah and Nellie, Roobarb’s lesser known sequel.

Following the recent passing of Rick Jones, the hippyish Play School and Fingerbobs host, we remember his contribution to 1970’s children’s television and his time at the BBC where “marijuana was like cornflakes”. Rick will live on through FingermouseFlash the TortoiseGulliver and the Scampi which may or may not have had a name. RIP Rick.
