Bagpuss .... And so their work was done. Bagpuss gave a big yawn and settled down to sleep. And, of course, when Bagpuss goes to sleep, All his friends go to sleep too. The mice were ornaments on the mouse organ. Gabriel and Madeleine were just dolls. Professor Yaffle was a carved, wooden bookend in the shape of a woodpecker. Even Bagpuss himself, once he was asleep, was just an old, saggy cloth cat, Baggy, and a bit loose at the seams, But Emily loved him .... and so did I !!
