Muffin the Mule was one of the earliest BBC television shows. It was broadcast at least in 1953, near the time of Elizabeth II's coronation. It involved a human hostess speaking and singing to a puppet mule. (TV: The Idiot's Lantern)
Behind the scenes Edit
- In the real world, Muffin the Mule was recorded in Lime Grove Studios, Doctor Who's first studio home. (BBC DVD: The Curse of Peladon)
- When the first issue of TV Comic was published in 1951, it featured the first page of the Muffin the Mule comic on the cover with art done by Neville Main, who would be the first artist of the magazine's Doctor Who comic.
