In a similar style to _"SuperTed" (1983)_ this features toys which have been thrown in a factory reject bin but come to life and have adventures. This time though they are dolls and, rather than becoming superheroes and saving fellow beings, they show young viewers the important moral that even those who get rejected by others can still have fun Written by
After the first 13 episodes were shot and broadcast Yorkshire TV reassessed the the series and decided to dust down the look and feel of the production. Orchid Productions, headed by Jo Kemp and Neil Molyneux, created new characters including an eighth Raggy Doll called Ragamuffin. The new-look show was 'brighter' than the original and ran for 65 episodes. See more »
Growing up 15 years ago the raggy dolls was a shining beacon through the long six weeks holidays that arrived and left in what seemed like a heartbeat. Sad sack was a personal favorite of mine, his slow and dopey voice always tugged at my emotions. the mad cap adventures that they used to get involved in every week. It was a golden age of television. any 20 year old will agree, with programs such as fraggle rock, round the twist, thunder cats, superted and of course the poddington peas. gone are these days now and children's television is in a poor state from what it used to be. I personally feel that a TV channel should be dedicated to these classics that all the now grown ups can enjoy at work. maybe time it for us all to leave early on a Friday afternoon and watch it down the pub and enjoy the magical six week holiday feeling that one last time. as i know each and everyone of us misses the long hot and fun summers
