The daughter of Mr. Spoon, once celebrated children's entertainer and all round friendly alien, has revealed that the moon upon which Mr. Spoon lived had no buttons.
"For years he had sadistically deceived children by employing a vet to sing a title song which included the line 'We're off to button moon'. I was one of those children too," weeped Mrs. Viners.
We tracked down Mr. Spoon to a ramshackled old barn in Barnstaple, where we found him stapleing small cardboard barns together for children.
"I have nothing to say," he said, obviously saying something.
We showed him a picture of Peter Davison and Sandra Dickinson.
"They can't help it," he muttered and reached for a tissue.
The matter is currently being investigated further by The Clangers.
