Noddy's Toyland Adventures is a British children's television programme that was broadcast from September 1992 until January 1993 and December 1994, and again in 1999 on the BBC. It was produced by Cosgrove Hall Films in stop-motion animation.

Why It Rocks

  1. The stop motion animation is splendid.
  2. Really enjoyable characters like Mr. Plod, Big Ears, Tessy Bear, Dinah Doll, etc.
  3. The idea about the characters being toys and living in a town called Toyland is pretty charming and trustworthy.
  4. Really good voice acting, especially in the UK dub, in which, you would notice years later that there were two people that did all of the voices, just like Mel Blanc and June Foray in Looney Tunes, Richard Briers in both Roobarb incarnations John Alderton in Fireman Sam in the first four seasons, Carlo Bonomi in Pingu, and Ken Barrie in Postman Pat.
  5. The pacing is fast in season four.
  6. Enjoyably fun stories.
  7. Gave a lot of children and adults very good life lessons.
  8. The theme song is calm, charming, and fun to listen to, like the Postman Pat theme.
  9. Noddy himself is a really likable and kind protagonist.
  10. Was finally brought to the United States in 1998 thanks to PBS Kids.
  11. The Maya CGI versions, Make Way for Noddy is a pretty good spin-off and Noddy in Toyland is pretty good.

Bad Qualities

  1. Even though American audiences enjoy the show, too, the US dub of the series was hit and miss, and wasn't as good as the US dubs of various shows like Thomas & Friends, Bob The Builder, Pokémon, Sonic X, or even Kirby: Right Back at Ya!
  2. Noddy and his main friends' voices given by Catherine Disher in the US dub just sounded painfully awful, as that voice sounded like children sick from a cold than a so called kiddie voices, which these voices is proof why Susan Sheridan should have done the same voice roles for Noddy and his friends in the American dub of said show, or some other actor other than Catherine Disher should have done proper roles for Noddy and his friends in the US dub. Thankfully in Make Way for Noddy (Noddy's incarnation spin-off from 2002-2007), Noddy (David A. Kaye) sounded like a real young boy's voice and Tessy Bear (Britt McKillip) and Dinah Doll (Tabitha St. Germain) sounded like real young girls' voices, which sounded much better than how that other voices were provided for them.
  3. Noddy Toyland Detective was a disgrace to what made Noddy great.
