Rupert the Bear

STRING-POWERED ANTICS for early-morning kiddies’ telly. Credits sequence featured young child at bed time being read to from illustrated “Rupert” book, before the characters would come to life in Nutwood. Terrifying jumping-from-out-of-nowhere stick-creature, “Raggetty”, provided the pre-adolescent nightmares (although he/she/it wasn’t even in the original stories, and we can only surmise that some fat, ciger-chomping exec issued a decree from his desk to introduce an element of terror to the otherwise gentle cartoons.)
