Make Way For Noddy

Show Summary

Welcome to the Make Way For Noddy Guide at TV.com! Noddy began life in 1949 as the star of Enid Blyton's immensely-successful children's book Noddy Goes to Toyland, illustrated by Harmsen van der Beek. From there, it flowered into multitudes of toys, games, and TV series. The first Noddy TV adaptation came in 1975, with the stop-action shorts produced by Brian Cosgrove and Mark Hall. The BBC followed up this success a few years later with the half-hour Noddy in Toyland. In 1998 PBS adapted their own version of Noddy as a sort of double-decker bus. The beloved Noddy stop-action films, produced by Brian Cosgrove and Mark Hall, were only part of a larger live-action story. In the eyes of some, PBS and Noddy had the right love at the wrong time. As the half-hour Noddy was seeing its PBS exposure erode, the Enid Blyton company broke out a new enterprise of Noddy and his old friends in Toyland. That effort, recorded with the latest computer-generated imagery, so compatible with digital television, was titled Make Way For Noddy, as if to send a message to the public. To borrow the lyrics of a Barry Manilow song, it was inevitable that "Somewhere Down The Road," the paths of Noddy and PBS would cross again. Thus, Make Way for Noddy debuted in PBS in Fall of 2005 in a half-hour version consisting of two of the 12 minutes episodes packaged with two new three minute interstitials entitled Say it With Noddy with Noddy learning new words in foreign languages with his friend Whizz, music videos, and a live-action host.moreless

    4.9
    Noddy used to air on BBC sure i liked it then but now i think it's crap but later Five(Channel 5)decided to make a crap remake of the original the new theme song is worse than the original i keep hearing that theme song in Toys R Us(when my brother needs to buy toys) which is annoying this show is even worse than Robotboy which is actually gay and so is this show if you like it your'e really really immature no offence you can hate me all you want but you cannot deny the truth there are people who actually love this and the old Noddy was better compared to this also i see that darn character everywhere and yes the bullies in my school talk about this show and sing the theme song all the time at least there is some people who think it is for babies it really annoys me and i hope Noddy is banned in the UK anytime soon same in the USA i feel sorry that they have to suffer from this crap.moreless
