Ho di I remove unwanted materials and animations from my Blend?

Hi Guys,

I have a blend file which has many materials and some animation data (create via action manager) and I want to delete them but I dont seem to be able to do this.
I have tried hitting the X next to the materials and actions but they will not be deleted.

Please help.

When you press the x next to the materials it unlinks it from that object but wont delete it,when you save your file only materials that are linked to an object will be saved ie unlinked materials will be deleted.Note you will have to close the file and re-open it for the unlinked items to be deleted.

Your little avatar was freaking me out for a few seconds! I would have sworn that I saw something move out of the corner of my eye, and then I realized the little bear moved. You had me staring at my screen waiting to see what was going on! LOL

Me to, very cool!
