The Creators Of Zig And Zag Have Told A Very Creepy Story About The Original Podge Puppet

James Fenton

To Irish people of a certain generation, alien puppets Zig and Zag were basically like family. We’d see them as soon as we got home from school, they taught all we know about the big bad world and most of the time they had us in stitches while doing it. 

The stars of The Den on RTÉ, the brothers from the planet Zog were the brainchildren of 
Ciarán Morrison and Mick O’Hara who also brough the nightmarish Podge and Rodge into our lives. Now, all these years later, the lads, who can be found on Twitter under the username @DoubleZCreative, have gone out of their way to share a story about the original Podge puppet which wouldn’t be out of place in an episode of A Scare At Bedtime

Firstly, readers are warned that the story could be a bit too much on the scary side for some…

Before the whole creepy tale unravels, culminating in the discovery of a mysterious note in Podge’s pocket. Read on…

Who put the note there? Why are the jokes so creepy? And how come no one has discovered it until now? There be no sleep tonight, that’s for sure.
