Sooty is victim of Alien Abduction

postcardTV legend Sooty was left devastated when the star of his current stage show – “Sooty in Space” failed to arrive at the theatre.

The Triplod is an 8ft tall, green three legged space alien who travels with scenery and props in the Sooty Tour Lorry. Security guards at Brean Leisure Park Somerset noticed the Lorry had been broken into in the early hours of Saturday morning. Thieves ignored valuable stage equipment and instead made off with the giant alien.

Sooty has asked the public to be on the lookout for the Triplod. He is not dangerous and is only likely to want to engage onlookers in a dance known as The Triplod Stomp.

Police are investigating the alien abduction and are appealing for anyone with information to get in contact.

Sooty, who celebrated his 65th birthday last week, was being comforted by Sweep and Soo – They all declined to comment.
