I find the theme tune to this haunting as hell. I used to enjoy this show when I was little..and even not so little.
Narrated by the utterly irreplaceable Oliver Postgate, Tottie never got the same level of attention or remembrance than Ivor The Engine or Bagpuss, but was still a very worthy addition to the lineup of these quiet, soothing stories that precisely no children’s television maker is remotely interested in touching in these times of “BAM BAM, NO ATTENTION SPAN!!!!!”
And the skill of this series was that even though it was about a doll’s house, it didn’t mean you had to be a girly girl to gain enjoyment out of it.
This is the Christmas episode, and featured the theme tune actually sung – which is almost as haunting as the theme tune itself.
