Brace yourselves because you’re about to feel incredibly old: The Animals of Farthing Wood first graced our television screens 26 years ago.

Yup, that’s right, it’s been more than two decades since we first fell in love with Mole, Badger and Fox and their dangerous journey to White Deer Park.

And when we say dangerous, we really mean it. Contrary to what your memories might tell you Farthing Wood was not 100% not an, ahem, walk in the park as Twitter user @bilbo983 discovered when he re-watched the whole thing.

In fact, it turns out that the whole damn show was an absolute festival of horrors furnished with a heavy scent of death and misery. And it was aimed at children. The 90s were a very different time.

Here’s the full brutal rundown of death that you’ve no doubt blanked from your adult memories.

And the worst of all? Well, it’s got to be Badger hasn’t it?

No we’re not crying, we’re bawling.
