I've been staring at the computer screen for so long I'm now seeing starfish, but the good news is I've completed my application for the job at Brighton Sea Life Centre. Its success hinges largely on my ability to convince them that this...

The Freshwater Friends
... demonstrates a proven ability to work with underwater creatures. I may not have drawn the pictures, but I was in charge of writing the episode where they met The Poddington Peas. It was like the summit between Reagan and Gorbachev, but with more fish. Of course that was back in the days when I worked for Jim Henson. He was dead at the time, so wasn't aware of it, but I'm sure he'd have approved. I still have my notes for the episode featuring a mind-altering chemical spillage in Poddle Pond. Strange how it never got made.

Personally I thought this idea (from April 1992) was a goer too...

... but apparently not. I don't think I'd fully thought through the implications of underwater travel for vegetables. My handwriting hasn't improved in the last fifteen years either, but fortunately for my chances of employment, my CV is typed.
