Brum (/ˈbrʌm/), also known as The Adventures of Brum is a British children's television series about the adventures of a small, radio controlled vintage car.

Set in Birmingham, England and produced by Ragdoll Productions, Brum was first broadcast in 1991 and the last live action series was broadcast in 2002. It was initially directed, written and produced by Anne Wood and initially narrated by Toyah Willcox. The show was first aired on BBC One, as well as airing on satellite and pay television where it was screened on TCC and Living, and also aired in the United States on Discovery Family, in Australia on ABC, Max, Nickelodeon, ABC Kids and ABC2, in Brunei on RTB, in India on Pogo, in Indonesia on antv, in Singapore on Kids Central, in South Africa on SABC2 (with both an English dub and an Afrikaans dub) and CBeebies, in Kenya on KBC, in New Zealand on TV2 and TV3, in Namibia on NBC, in Zimbabwe on ZTV, in Ireland on RTÉ, in Germany on BFBS and SSVC Television, in the Netherlands on Nederland 3, in Bangladesh on BTV, in Malaysia on TV3 and in the Emirates on Dubai 33. It also aired on the now-defunct children's channel, KPC "Kids Pick Cartoons". A new CGI-animated series, aimed at young pre-school children, was produced in 2016.

Why It Rocks

  1. Awesome stories about Brum exploring the world around him.
  2. Pleasant narration from Toyah Willcox (Series 1 and 2) and child voice overs (Series 3 to 5).
  3. The closing theme from Series 3 to 5 is catchy.
  4. Many likeable characters, such as Brum himself and even the Big Town Baddies, the antagonists of the show.
  5. Funny acting.
  6. Excellent mix of models and live action.
  7. Brum is based off a late 1920s Austin 7.
  8. Excellent settings, like the city of Birmingham, England as the Big Town.
  9. Great soundtrack.
  10. The first 3 series (with the exception of some episodes, especially 4th and 5th series), were added to BBC iPlayer and SKY as of since September 2020 in the UK only.
  11. The episode "Brum and the Crazy Chair Chase" ended the show on a high note.

Bad Qualities

  1. The 2016 reboot was really bad, along with the 2017 reboot, Brum & friends, which has absolutely no connection to the original series at all.
