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 »

Great...
29 April 2003 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I grew up watching the Raggy Dolls in England, and it's one of those feel good cartoons that have a lasting effect on you. I still hum the theme song these days. The cartoon had a good morale, as that was you don't have to be perfect to succeed. These raggy dolls, which were thrown in a reject bin and came to life, proved this. Great for kids.
