One of the weirdest things ever to air in British TV was The Clangers, a show about weird little creatures made of wool, who live on the Moon. (Doctor Who fans will remember it as the Master's favorite TV show in "The Sea Devils.") And now the Clangers are coming back after 40 years — here's your first look.

In the clip above, the Clangers discuss orbital mechanics — for real! — and explain the concept of a solar eclipse. This is more actual science than I'm guessing the 1970s version of the show ever tried to teach. The Clangers are back on CBBC this spring. [via Flickering Myth]
