Sad, we watched these "creations" as children and later as teenagers.  RIP Peter.
In fact I was watching Ivor in my 20's and no I didn't have kids.

I certainly remember watching (and enjoying watching) Ivor. On the rare occasion that I chance upon an episode today, I find myself watching at least that episode to conclusion. Thank you Jerry Howlett for adding to my childhood. RIP.

I'm glad I was child when I was and not now - Teletubbies, Pingu, etc. don't come close.
