Apparently Iggle Piggle from In the Night Garden is polite — even though all he says is — Eek. The conversation went like this…
G: Close it! Close it!
Me: Hey – that’s not nice. Ask nicely. Say Please close it. You must be polite.
G: Pease… Georgie be polite, like Iggle Piggle.
Me: Oh…is Iggle Piggle polite? (This is a revelation – Iggle Piggle doesn’t actually speak!)
G: Oh yes…he says – Eek.
