I think they were models and they would take a frame then slightly move them and then take another frame`and so on so they were a cross between puppets and cartoons.

I think you can put Camberwick Green and Trumpton in the same category as this.As they were filmed in the same way as Wallace and Gromit.

smiley - ok

smiley - coolsmiley - ta that's sorted then...smiley - biggrin

the interesting about the magic roundabout is that tho' the original version was french the story was very loosely adapted in english to the point that the story wa completly different...smiley - magic the word translation definitely doesn't come into it...smiley - whistle

but till fun all the same.. a bit more controversial than the original perhaps...smiley - smiley

That could be an interesting entry loup.If you get hold of the French version of the Magic Roundabout and then compare them to the English versions and find all the differences.It would take you ages though to try and do that.
It would be interesting to see the differences that the translations make as well.
Whoever does it though would have to have a good knowledge of French as well as English so that counts me out smiley - laugh

Have fun

might be easier than that actually... there was a TV programme once where they interviewed some of the actors who did the english voice-over... and that's how i discovered that no-one had bothered to translate the story they just made their own up in english..smiley - laugh

some great political undertones as well if i remember that programme well... dougal [sp?!] being actually de gaulle...smiley - biggrin

worth a look and make a parallel between the original version and the err alternative [english] one tho'... plus there was some surprises that it was not banned as there were rumours that was of the characters was always stoned [?!] hehe... there is more to this TV series than we would think it seems..smiley - cool

oh look we've got half of the entry done already...smiley - biggrin

i will try to get a transcript of an episode in french and see what can be done from that angle...smiley - smiley

talk soon...smiley - surfer

Plus it could also be the first recorded case of BSE or as Dougal might say "mad cow" disease smiley - laugh

Poor Ermintrude smiley - laugh As kids we used to muck about.You know kids grow cresssmiley - huh Well we used to get hold of the cress or a flower or something and just have it hanging from our mouths smiley - laugh I think I was about 3 then smiley - laugh.We had some giggles with it though.

But yes I think you will find that Dillon the hippy bunny was always stoned.Makes you wonder what would have happened if he ever met Weed from Bill and Ben the flower pot men smiley - laugh
