Sad to hear the 'passing' of Raymond Briggs, author and illustrator. His best known work was, of course, The Snowman, but my favourite was When The Wind Blows, which always makes me sob.

A Tory, a worker and an immigrant are sat round a table. There's a plate of 10 biscuits in the middle. The Tory takes 9 then turns to the worker and says "that immigrant is trying to steal your biscuit"

Fungus the bogeyman too of course.
“Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
“Generosity always pays off. Generosity in your effort, in your work, in your kindness, in the way you look after people and take care of people. In the long run, if you are generous with a heart, and with humanity, it always pays off.”

The film of ' when the wind blows' had great music by David Bowie as well if I remember and class voice acting by British film greats.
