The Clangers Bento Lunch

The Clangers was one of my favorite programs growing up in the UK it was originally shown  1969 -1972 and repeated throughout the 70s. Its a classic stop motion series with knitted pink moon mice who communicate by whistling.

The Clangers family consist of Major Clanger, Mother Clanger, Small Clanger and Tiny Clanger (and a couple of un-named Clangers)

Also on their little blue moon are other creatures such as the soup dragon who provides the Clangers with green soup and the Froglets who live in a top hat.

So when deciding what to try in my PlanetBox Rover Lunchbox. These little space creatures seemed perfect

So here is the lunch with a couple of friends the Soup dragon (makes the gurgling sounds) and Mother Clanger (she whistles)
