A look back at a 2014 special issue that celebrated much-loved animated characters

Yes looking at this set of stamps it certainly does bring back memories, although I am old enough to remember these I only saw the re runs I wish.
Its funny what images can do but I also remember the so called experts and their comments about hidden meanings and sexual orientation of them, Andy Pandy being one of them along with the Magic Roundabout. As a kid I never once took anything in other than the fact they were funny. However I did not like Andy Pandy I have to say, there was something odd about it, I liked Flobber lobber lob better (Flower pot men).
So out of this 12 I know all but 1 and that is Peppa Pig, being channel 5 says a lot I suppose? Favourites not here Poggles Wood, Trumpton, The Clangers, Thomas the Tank although I know the RM did an issue all of its own for Thomas in 2011 and to be honest, I do feel it was the narration that actually made these programmes rather than characters.
And this was the big change in society, maybe to do with the loss of Mary Whitehouse and what do we have on TV these days, absolute garbage from kids to adults, which is why I got rid of my TV in 2001. Innocence and good humour lost to graphics, bad language and sex.
So maybe these experts wanted it this way by ruining the innocence and inventing this depravity so it made way for what we have now, a method to the madness. I'm so glad I'm a big kid because I do only have to look at these and a smile appears on my face.
