| So cute
Who knew you could have so much fun with three hand puppets, one of whom was mute and one who didn't do anything but squeak? But it's true as 'The Sooty Show' was such a successful children's show that it ran for nearly three decades. The show revolved around Matthew Corbett, who ran a shop with his three 'friends' Sooty the bear, Sweep the adorable squeaky dog and Soo the panda (who was also annoyingly condescending at times, but there you go!). Occasionally, they were joined by Sooty's baby cousin Scampy.

The quartet always managed to find themselves involved in mini adventures that sometimes ended with a little moral to teach the wee ones watching the show about how to be good little boys and girls and other times it saw Sooty getting out his wand to perform a little magic (I'll never forget the spell 'izzy, whizzy, let's get busy!'). All in all, it was very cute and certainly kept me occupied even when I was a bit too old to be watching it!
