If you grew up in the UK and are at all nostalgic for children's television character Bagpuss—that's him there on the right there—you'll be glad to hear he's getting his first-ever pop-up shop next month. Yes, the pink-and-white original fatcat will be holding court with The Clangers at Whiteleys Shopping Center in Bayswater from October 25th through 30th. The original puppets and other goodies will be on display and visitors will be able to shop exclusive Bagpuss and Clangers merch. Meow. [Racked Inbox]
