Ziggy's Gift (1982)
« on: September 04, 2007, 04:24:50 PM »
Does anyone remember this Christmas-themed cartoon featuring the popular-in-the-US, virtually unknown over here character 'Ziggy'?

It's been shown a few times by the BBC, according to INFAX...
25 Dec 1983 12:37-13:00 (BBC 1)
26 Dec 1985 13:01-13:24 (BBC 1)
25 Dec 1987 07:02-07:25 (BBC 1)
25 Dec 1989 07:56-08:19 (BBC 1)
25 Dec 1991 11:21-11:44 (BBC 2)
...so some people must have watched it. Last time I saw it would have been 1991, I reckon, and by the end I was blubbering like a softy in need of industrial-strength prozac. It's a little classic, not at all schmaltzy.

I have seen this a couple of times - the 1983 and 1985 showings would be most likely and have fond-ish memories of it.

But I'm gonna wait until December before I press that little grey 'Play' triangle.
