Things You Discover From Kids TV - In The Night Garden

In The Night Garden.

If you haven't seen In The Night Garden, basically it's a psychedelic show that is usually shown about half past six on an evening, because nothing says "Time for bed" like a floating green airship with a pink nose.

Night night.

Anyway, you can tell that it is a British show?


The Pontipines and the Wottingers don't like each other.

The Pontipines and the Wottingers are two families of tiny little people that live next door to each other.  And despite the fact that you'd think that the show would having them being nice to each other, it's quite clear that they hate each others guts.

The Pontipines.

The Wottingers will go round and knock on the Pontipines door to see them.  The Pontipines don't answer the door until the Wottingers go away.  Then, when the Wottingers return to their own home, they'll go and bang on their door, and then go back home before Mr Wottinger has chance to say hello.

Here we see the Pontipines knocking on the Wottingers door.  Guess what happened next. Clue - It didn't involve Mr Wottinger opening the door.

If they do happen to be forced to speak to each other, they will invariably arrange a picnic.  Now, you wouldn't think this would be difficult.  They live next to each door, right?  Surely all that they have to do is prepare some food, and travel, all together, to wherever they want to have the picnic, and eat away like woodland vermin around a diseased rabbit.


The Pontipines will set up the picnic somewhere, and before giving the Wottingers chance to get there, will eat all the picnic.

The Wottingers are waving to the Pontipines, but you could cut the atmosphere with a knife.  I bet Mr Pontipine "borrowed" the Wottingers lawn mower and never returned it.

Amazingly we haven't seen a fistfight between Mr Pontipine and Mr Wottinger, but I feel that it is only a matter of time.

And don't get me started on the Hahoos.  Basically these are a pack of giant smiling balloons that just slowly move towards you.  You can imagine being chased by them - yes, they might be slow, but nothing is going to stop them.
Hello. We're really friendly.  Don't let the fact that we're ten times the size of ANYTHING ELSE in this forest put you off.
