Any Hey Duggee fans out there?
For those of you shamefully unaware of this piece of absolute genius, this is a cartoon aimed at under fives on Cbeebies. Duggee is a dog and sort of scout leader, the squirrels are the young kids who earn badges at his club. It is beyond sweet and wonderful and is, in my opinion, up there with The Wire and The Sopranos. I admit that it could be that having two children under five has affected my taste here.
However today’s episode “The Stick Badge” absolutely outdid itself; the squirrels had to build a camp fire, they needed sticks, they found a stick who sung. The song sounded EXACTLY like the happy hardcore which blighted Scotland’s post industrial hell holes in the early 90s. Except it had charm.
Anyone else got a soft spot for music from cartoons?
