Like how hard would it be to make a new one, though? Bit of wood, paper maché, white paint, wool...

Infact they could start the 1st episode with make-and-do: Bosco: the ressurection

Somebody I went to college with - it was her mates who stole the puppet. One of the Lambert kids was in UCD and had Bosco in a big case and they nicked him for a joke. Then they took him on hols to San Francisco and took a pick of him waving with the Golden Gate bridge in the background and faxed it to one of the papers here!!! They returned him in the end / called up and said they found him!
Anyhoos I always wanted a Bosco puppet but my mum said they were too dear! A kid in school had one but his nose was broken off so it wasn't the same as the "real" Bosco!! One of the presenter guys moved to our road abt 10 years ago and we all used to sing the Bosco song as he walked by which looking back was a bit bold!! Sorry David-from-Bosco if you're reading this!!

As a red head who grew up during the bosco era, i would like to say i hope hes burning in hell for the anguish his mop of wool-hair caused to me and my kind. bad enough the kids had fireman sam to slag us with, but bosco had the edition of being irish. thank God intensive counselling has stopped me from dissappearing into cardboard boxes with kitchen knives anymore!
