Button Moon

Button Moon seems older in my memory, it first started in 1980 but always looked like it belonged in the 1950s.
It's primitive feel added to the charm of a show that ran for 91 episodes until 1988.
The characters and the set would not be out of place in an overpriced Etsy store. The characters and set were created from various (mostly) kitchen accessories. Button Moon hung in blanket sky. Mr Spoon in the show would often fly to Button Moon in his spaceship which was a gift from his wife. The Spoons live on Junk Planet. The show was created by Ian Allen and narrated by actor Robin Parkinson. The theme tune was written and performed by the then Dr Who, Peter Davison and his then wife Sandra Dickinson.

 The following episode, The Flying Jam Sandwich is from series 2, episode 7. Enjoy!
