When I was young, I loved to watch The Magic Roundabout at the end of Children’s Hour on BBC One, just before the evening news came on. My favourite character, only just ahead of Dougal, was Dylan the rabbit.
Ten years ago, Jack Johnson had a hit with Better Together. I love the song for its mood and its lyrics, but it immediately put Dylan into my mind. My vision had Dylan atop a mule, just rocking slowly in time to the music across an arid plain. He wears a hat and sucks on a piece of straw.
Cool character, cool song.
