Belle and Sebastian

ORIGINAL LIVE ACTION version of this Alpen-yawn business saw eight-year-old Seb tame mysterious beast of the mountains (in reality dopey dog Belle) with supposed gypsy hokum and go on to catch smugglers and stop avalanches with bare hands. And paws. Dubbed into posh English to make kid – naturally – sound like a public schoolboy.

    Late eighties and early nineties saw the BBC buy up the sprawling, endless Anime remake and show it in seemingly random order.

      I remember watching the anime version, there were various side arcs to the main story but as far as I know it was in order.

      We were lucky to get an instrumental of the theme, as the original had a lot of high pitched yodel like singing in Japanese!

      It’s on You Tube if you aren’t too fond of your ears!
