Muffin on an early television (TV: The Idiot's Lantern)

Muffin the Mule was one of the earliest BBC television shows. It was broadcast at least in 1953, near the time of Elizabeth II's coronation. It involved a human hostess speaking and singing to a puppet mule. (TV: The Idiot's Lantern)

According to one account, when Ace turned on the television in Mrs Smith's boarding house in 1963, it showed a woman with a thick posh accent playing a piano while a wooden donkey jerked up and down. (PROSE: Remembrance of the Daleks)

The Twelfth Doctor compared Muffin the Mule not actually being inside one's television to a monster he encountered not literally being trapped within a cassette tape. (AUDIO: Dead Media)
