For broadcast on Children's ITV in 1983-1986 in the UK, the original 78 episodes were cut into a 100 episodes of 5 minutes duration each. At the time some material from the original version was deemed to be too strong for children's viewing. See more »
Forget what Torgo says, if you were younger when this was on, then you would have found this series charming, and a bit scary at times, but then kids like to be scared, just a bit, but not too much and this has just the right amount of suspense to keep youngsters happy while still being watchable by us older folks. The stories were excellent, being based on the original books, and in fact, as a fan of the books, I think the adaptations were very sympathetic to the originals. The animation and narration are first class, and if you are a fan of the books, you won't be disappointed, and if you were a fan of Bagpuss and the other output from Smallfilms such as the Klangers then this will be right up your street.
