Herbs, The

SUBLIME SONG-ORIENTED stop motion from PADDINGTON/WOMBLES stable. All your commonplace domestic herbs in ornate secret allotment personified as people or animals. From the top: Parsley the Lion, Dill the Dog, Bayleaf the Gardener, Constable Knapweed, Lord Basil, Lady Rosemary, Sage the Owl, Tarragon the Dragon, an Onion teaching a load of Chives, Pashana Bedi the snake-charmer, and Belladonna. Dill and Parsley undoubtedly the stars, the latter gaining his own MAN ABOUT THE HOUSE/ROBIN’S NEST-style spin off affair, THE ADVENTURES OF PARSLEY.

    I remember the door to the garden closing at the end of the show. Then Parsley appeared & roared, which scared me so much I had to hide behind the sofa!

    Wasn’t this another one with a voiceover by Brian C*nt?

    I think it was Gordon Rollings narrating this.

    Channel 4 showed this at lunchtimes in the 1990s, when they bought up the rights to a few old animated shows.
