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.
