Make Way for Noddy (2002)

Noddy's Toyland Adventures is a British children's television programme that was broadcast from September 1992 until April 1994 and December 1994, and again in 2000 on the Children's BBC block of the BBC. It was produced by Cosgrove Hall Films in stop-motion animation.[1]

The show featured the memorable voice acting talents of voice actors and television writers Susan Sheridan and Jimmy Hibbert[2] (both of whom also worked on the version of The Little Polar Bear for the United Kingdom, as well as the later "also Cosgrove Hall-produced" television series CITV's The Animal Shelf), with every episode being written by Julia and Chris Allen respectively during its broadcast run. Paul K. Joyce composed and performed the show's opening theme.

The series follows the adventures of Noddy, a little wooden doll who lives in Toyland with his red and yellow car, often trying to make sixpence or getting himself in trouble. With his best friends Big Ears, Mr. Plod and Tessie Bear, they are always ready to lend a hand, especially when he gets tricked by Gobbo and Sly, the wicked Goblins. The episode mostly ends with Noddy laughing and nodding his head which makes the bell on his hat ring - whatever the situation.

Episodes of this series aired in Canada and the United States as part of a full thirty-minute program titled "Noddy" which featured the original UK animations re-dubbed with North American voices, which were shown in between all new live action segments. Paul K. Joyce's soundtrack was replaced by a new score by Stacey Hersh, who also scored the live action part of the series. Nashville-based songwriter Dennis Scott composed 99 new songs for the live action segments, including the opening theme; several of the re-dubbed Noddy animations were also released on VHS by Universal under USA Home Entertainment and PolyGram Video. These videos also featured songs written by Stacey Hersh and co-writer Ari Posner. This new series aired in the United Kingdom in 1999, under the title "Noddy in Toyland" (not to be confused with the show from 2009);[3] the original British sound-track was used though the live action segments were considered "original cut".

In 2020, Noddy's Toyland Adventures was added onto Peacock (NBCUniversal's recent streaming service) and Apple TV.
