The original opening credit sequence, illustrated by Valerie Pye
, featured several town inhabitants standing in front of the General Store. They were, from left to right: Farmer Field, Roland Crust, Lilly Lolly, Bobby Bins and Barney Bodger. When Billy Connolly
(who played Bobby Bins) left after just two episodes, his character was replaced by the similar Tommy Tidy, played by William Rushton
. Tommy's outfit was almost identical to that of Bobby, making it seem that the drawn figure in the opening credits represented Tommy Tidy instead of Bobby Bins. See more
