Clangers was a British children's TV series that ran from 1969 - 1972/1974. It was about a family of pink mouse-like creature on a moon-like planet.

Recently the original creators have renewed the series, and the show is airing on CBeebies. Unlike a lot of remakes that face the conversion to CGI, they have remained true and kept to stop-motion animation using knitted puppets.

What are your thoughts? Did you see the original series? Have you seen the new one? Do you have children that enjoy it?

I only saw bits of the original Clangers, but I still have a great fondness for it. I am always very worried when remakes come along, but they have stayed so faithful that it is brilliant and I love the new series. I am also glad that this generation of children can see what great shows used to be like.
I'm surprised more UK people haven't answered your question Bryony. I don't think it made it all this way to Australia!

I do not usually watch children's tV shows, so have not heard of this one!
by Finy
No, iíve never heard of this t.v. show. Was it ever shown in Australia?
by Miro
I don't know to be honest. It was a major hit in the UK, but whether there was an audience outside, I don't know.
