    Look, I don't know why, but the Yip Yips used to scare the ever-loving Hell out of me.
    I watched the show as a young child, 4,5,6,7 years old, but when the Yip Yips came on I would scream and run into the other room. I used to have nightmares about them coming down and staring at me.
    Even to this day…… those eyes……
