Hey, It’s Photo Friday!

As you may have gathered, I’m a big fan of Wishbone – the little dog with the big imagination. It was a cool show with a great premise (bring classic books to a young audience) and an ultra-cute canine star. So you can understand my surprise to stumble upon this promotional Wishbone stand-up in a co-worker’s cubicle.

The display probably dates back to the early days of the show (mid-90s) but I’ve no idea as to its actual origins. I could ask but I don’t want to tip my hand if the cardboard doggie happens to go walkies.

Sir Derek Jacobi is an actor who just seems to elevate any project he’s involved with. You may know him from Vicious or Last Tango In Halifax but his public broadcasting appearances go back decades to the 1970s and I, Claudius. However, one of Jacobi’s more interesting roles was as a sleuthing monk on the Mystery! presentation Cadfael. Here’s a shot of a promotional poster for that series that somehow made it’s way to my office after a colleague retired. My best guess is this was from the 1996-1997 season.
