The Clangers phone sounds

I have too much spare time on my hands, so one night when the wife buggered off to sleep, I went through some episodes of the new Clangers and grabbed some audio for some phone notifications.

After literally a few seconds work in Audacity I had enough to drive people around me mad, and since I’m a sharing kind of person, here they are for download. Sure I’m breaking copyright regulations, but we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it.





Clangers – the reboot

“It’s the only show that he would sit and watch and be quiet” says me Mum when she heard the Clangers were returning this month to television.

Yes I’m 43, but it’s 5:30pm and I’m transported back to a five year old sat on the carpet staring at knitted pink deformed elephants with swanee whistles for voices.

When I heard they were remaking the Clangers, I dreaded some computer generated bollocks, like Thunderbirds, but pleasantly surprised they’ve kept with the original style of stop frame animation.

And Michael Palin as the narrator? Genius.

Seeing Granny, Major, Mother, Tiny and Small again on the screen makes me happy, and reminds me of a time in my life when I was vaguely happier, before real life came along and shat all over it.
