Mr Horatio Nibbles (1971)
Cute, loveable things come in small packages which is probably why Mr Horatio Nibbles is a towering, 6ft effigy of paganistic terror.
His face is like a day-old rotting corpse which kind of belies his fob-watch-adorned 3 piece suit and posh, reassuring voice.
If you like daft policemen being foiled by rolling barrels, if you relate to brothers sneering from the sidelines about your girly flights of fancy, then this is the, er, minor Children's Film Foundation film for you.
If like me, you used to have reoccurring nightmares about large, imposing bears, talking to you out of sight of your parents, approach with trepidation.
Just type 'mr horatio nibbles' in to YouTube and unleash a film that's probably somewhere in your subconscious anyway...it must be...
