I know it's a good cause, think of the kiddies, yada yada yada, but I have to hold my hands up and confess I can't sit through the annual Children In Need telethon. Just the thought of singing newsreaders has me reaching for my off switch. Every so often, though, it throws up a little corker of an item and last night, while waiting for the sneak peak of the Christmas Doctor Who special, this one popped up.
Comedian Peter Kay has an amazing ability to gather the biggest names in British entertainment to take part in his charity pop videos. This time he promised a cast of nearly 100 famous faces, and he didn't disappoint.
There was just one thing that wasn't mentioned...
...not one of those famous faces was human.
Two years in the making, this is an incredible collaboration that brings together so many of the best loved cartoon and puppet characters that have been on British TV over the last 60 years. So whether you grew up on Muffin The Mule or Iggle Piggle, there's something here to bring back happy memories.
The song and video are already available to download on iTunes, and will be in the shops on Monday.
