Happy birthday to @Great Uncle Bulgaria and the rest of The Wombles, who debuted on TV 48 years ago today.

I can't say I remember the exact debut, but I do remember it from first time around (I even have a Wombles badge). God I'm old.

Thanks. Very timely - as I was intending to post tomorrow, 6/2 is Mike Batt's birthday.

I too have a Wombles badge (a green 'Keep on Wombling' one, as you ask). Until recently I also had a Tobermory one from the 70s (not sure why, he was never my favourite and I'm not remotely practical/good at repairing stuff), but don't recall seeing it in the drawer for a couple of years....

Actually, now you mention it, I'm not sure if I do have a Wombles badge, maybe I should have said 'had'. It was Orinoco, I do remember that.

 

Its more than possible I traded it in for an anti-cruise badge during my student protester days.

I had one of those too once. 

My affinity for the Wombles long outlasted my desire to go on political demonstrations though.

DerrickRose1 now appears indisposed.

Awaiting the response from DerrickRose2 with bated breath. 

 

Mind you, I may not be the only one able to spot a minor problem with any planned 'increment by 1' subterfuge. We shall see.

I hope it was because he used 'of' instead of 'have'.
