Why Paddington didn’t develop diabetes and/or ever fancy something else to eat and/or get into a right mess wearing sandwiches under his hat all the time.
Why nobody reported the Lost Boys as missing… Surely someone would have noticed.
Why did Captain Hook never open fire on that blasted crocodile?
Why humorous writing in any format is underappreciated. Where are the major literary awards for it? The P.G. Wodehouse Prize is great but I want to see a funny novel win The Booker. I want to see humour writing taken more seriously as an art form. It is very difficult to write funny and I sometimes think this is looked down on. Serious reviews tend to be about serious books.
Where the Famous Five got all that ginger beer from…
When and for heaven’s sake why it was decided the old classic cartoons wouldn’t be shown on TV any more. I used to love the five minute slots filled with Tom and Jerry and so on.
Why it was always the caretaker that was the bad guy in Scooby Doo - why didn’t the writers vary the format a bit?! Great show though.
Why almost always the best writing is understated. This applies through all formats too. I’ve been rewatching one of my favourite comedy sketches - Morecambe and Wise (Andre Previn sketch). The under-playing especially by Previn, who looked so deadpan, was wonderful. Is still wonderful. Less really is more.
How those mice in Bagpuss could fix practically everything you care to name. I know mice can be clever little creatures but there is a limit! And wasn’t Bagpuss tempted, even just once, to have an additional furry snack? Cats do have powerful instincts!
