Bagpuss joins The Clangers for London exhibition

Children's TV favourite Bagpuss has found a new home at the V&A Museum of Childhood in London.

The pink and white striped cat, who starred in a 13-episode BBC series in 1974, has been put on display alongside The Clangers.

The five pink, long-nosed, mouse-like creatures, who lived on a small planet, starred in a self-titled show which launched on the BBC in 1969.

Both Bagpuss and The Clangers were the creations of Oliv er Postgate and Peter Firmin, and filmed in a barn in rural Kent.

The Clangers, Bagpuss & Co exhibition will showcase the work of Smallfilms, Firmin and Postgate's production company.

It opens to the public on Saturday March 19 at the V&A Museum of Childhood in Bethnal Green, east London.
