Bagpuss was first seen on British television on 12th February 1974. The charming children's stop motion animation was made by Oliver Postgate and Peter Firmin, starring the "saggy old cloth cat" Bagpuss. He lived in a strange shop - owned by a little girl called Emily - which didn't actually sell anything, but was a home for lost property.
Only 13 episodes were ever made, but the programme has remained popular down the generations and was voted the all-time favourite children's programme in 1999. The show has now delighted viewers of children's television for 50 years.
Join Emily and friends as she wakes Bagpuss once again, now fully restored in high definition, from the film negatives and released on DVD and Blu-ray 9th October 2023 from Fabulous Films.
