I see that Sooty and Sweep have returned to UK television.
It is being presented in a modern setting, but with the original glove puppets instead of a CGI or equivalent rendering. Afficionados will know that where ever Sooty goes, there's a custard pie or water pistol not far behind.
It gives a small excuse to feature the Sooty Club website here, with its range of free games.
My favourite is the Sooty Soaker, which captures the essence of the simple fun that Sooty and friends provide.
For a glove puppet, Sooty can be quite edgy and I see managed to slapstick a pizza so hard that one of the guests had to call into hospital afterwards.
And there's already an episode discussion of the first of the new series on Facebook.
