Clangers was a puppet TV show for children. The Master watched an episode of Clangers while he was imprisoned on Fortress Island. He whistled along with the noises they made. When the prison governor Colonel George Trenchard asked him what he was watching, the Master responded that "it seems to be a rather interesting extraterrestrial lifeform." Trenchard told him it was just puppets for children. The Master expressed disappointment over this. (TV: The Sea Devils)

- The episode the Master watches is The Rock Collector which was first broadcast on 25 April 1971.
- The Clangers scene would later be echoed by the Master enjoying Teletubbies in the television story The Sound of Drums.
