barnaby the singing bear ...

Do you remember Barnaby?

Barnaby the bear was a character created by Olga Pouchine. Originally a french series, the English version, transmitted in 1973 had voices provided by Colin Jeavons, Charles Collingwood, Gwenllian Owen and Percy Edwards. The story tells of Barnaby's life with the circus.

I remember loving this as a kid and was really pleased to discover a snippet taken from the series on You Tube. I can't find many people who actually remember the programme, which I think is really weird as I remember it so well, I have always thought of Barnaby as being so cute.


Click on this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wyy2lEsuIHk to watch Barnaby singing his famous tune whilst doing numerous circus tricks, rather like patting your head and rubbing your stomach at the same time, so clever!

sorry Louise
I don't remember Barnaby but I know just what you mean about the yearning to find films, prgrammes etc from my youth.. The Singing Ringing Tree was a favourite of mine and I would love to see it again.. I think it was Czechosovlakian??? and was heavily dubbed but was pure fantasy for my impressionable young mind.. Do you remember it?? or Sarah and Hoppity about a girl and her little dog.. I can still remember the signature tune..
Sweet memories!
