Okay, come on people!  We are forgetting the most important character (and my personal favorite)  Let's hear it for Death! :)

I think nobody specifically mentioned Death because it's self-evident that Death is cool. How can you not like him?

And when the Death of Rats went "SQUEAK!" I remember that I laughed so hard I choked on my drink and snorted part of it back out through my nose. Painful! I prefer not to think about Death of Rats.

It was sad not to have more of the Death of Rats in the UK Hogfather movie. I guess it was too expensive to animate him very much.

Christmas special in two parts last year, only saw first part (brilliant), due to *&"$^%&*£$%!£$%&%^&*! video recorder >:( They will repeat it I'm sure, but I was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo frustrated at the time.

I can't remember her name but the actress playing Susan was superb.

Ditto!  There are tapes (DVDs?) you can get of CoM & LF, & maybe one of the Witches ones, but they're of stage adaptations.  Used to see them in the U Bookstore in Seattle.

Check UHF channels, it's 84 on my tv.  Not good reception, but there.  It's also or formerly PAX tv.  And see if you've got a family member or friend who will either also want to see it & invite you to their place, or record for you.  I'm hoping I can see it at my brother's place, his reception is much better, & I want to introduce him to it.

Everyone in my family has local channels only. *sigh* And most of my friends aren't into that type of show.
