The legal world was shocked today when a Tombliboo sued Ragdoll, manufacturers of the wonderful “in the night garden…” The Tombliboo (it is not clear if it is Unn, Ooo, or Eee) has claimed that he was bullied and abused by the production team behind the fly on the wall meta-textual documentary.
For the uninitiated “In the night garden…” involves a trip through the subconscious of Iggle Piggle as he floats over the sea in a boat (although this itself could be a story within a story told to a small child featuring in the open credits). Iggle Piggle’s subconscious is populated with Upsy Daisy – McCartney to Iggle Piggle’s Lennon: Makka Pakka (the quiet one); the Tombliboos (who live in a giant topiary constructed delight resembling a bee hive); and theWottingers and Pontipines – who are friends of mine although they’re only small. The Haahoos are enormous creatures that look and sound like self-satisfied pillows. Iggle Piggle’s subconsicous has good public transport links with a Ninky Nonk and Pinky POnk catering for all travel needs.
