Time!!!
1 August 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Pipkins' was one of the best children's shows of the 1970s, with its manic (and in some cases, Brummie) puppets Hartley the Hare, Topov the Monkey, and the ever-experimenting Pig. There was also Tortoise, and the French ostrich Octavia. There was also a bloke called Wayne who kept the whole thing together.

'Time!!!' was an insert in each show with a lot of clocks, but I can't really remember why now. But the best of all was Hartley's put downs of Pig ('oh shut up, Pig!') and his ineffectual flirting with Octavia. Great fun in an era which also had Morph the plasticine man, and Zippy, Bungle and the curiously camp George in 'Rainbow'.
