Tag your friends as Poddington Peas

Chances are high you’ve seen a bunch of round and green cartoon characters pass by in your Facebook news feed. Yes, it’s another one of those collage pictures you can tag your friends in, and the cute characters at your service are called The Poddington Peas. The Poddington Peas was a British children’s cartoon series made for the BBC in the 80s by Colin Wyatt and Paul Needs. Take a trip to the eighties and check out the cartoon’s theme song and opening titles:
