Watching Chocky is one of my earliest memories as a child, which probably explains a lot. While the book is exceptional, the childrens show which grew out of it in the 80s was wondrously dark and foreboding, and featured magnificent effects.

This is something which I think should be in every city. A ritualised disposal service of bad memories and old habits which might allow a sense of closure or division between then and now. From the website:
We all have someone or something we would rather just forget. Things fall apart. Love hurts. Dreams die. But when you summon Death Bear to your door, you can rest assured that help has come. At first you may be intimidated by his stature and color (7 feet tall with a hard, black bear head, black jumpsuit, and black boots), but absorbing the memories of others is a dark art, and Death Bear must present himself appropriately for this solemn duty. Death Bear will take things from you that trigger painful memories and stow them away in his cave where they will remain forever allowing you to move on with your life. Give him an ex’s clothes, old photos, mementos, letters, etc. Death Bear is here to assist you in your time of tragedy, heartbreak, and loss. Let Death Bear help you, and absorb your pain into his cave.
