Hector the Dog and Zsazsa the Cat live in a house in the centre of a lovely garden full of flowers. Kiki the frog lives next door and seems to spend her time spying on them over the garden wall, or sneaking through her access hole for some excitement. Kiki and ZsaZsa often play tricks on Hector to teach him a lesson, leading him to say his catchphrase at the end of the episode, "I'm a Great Big [whatever he was] Old Hector". Written by

Like 'The Magic Roundabout', 'Hector's House' or 'Maison De TouTou, La' was a Gallic import.
Hector was a dog who shared a house with a cat. Various other creatures were regulars.
Their scrapes and adventures were trivial to say the least, but it was all good fun if you were the right age, ie: over 2 years old.
Voice-overs were dubbed in English like 'The Magic Roundabout', and there was a quaint, genteel patriarchy to the relationships that harked back to a pre-Victorian age. Each episode ended with some kind of moral that enabled Hector to boast about himself in a pompous, but also slightly self-effacing way.
It was never what one might call a classic program. Not apparently very popular either, considering the absence of commentaries. But it had its moments.
