Tuesday's Forgotten TV: Doctor Snuggles
My, it's been a few weeks since I contributed to Tuesday's Forgotten/Overlooked, but I'm happy to be back, this time with a TV series for children that was an international production.
Doctor Snuggles was a 13-episode animated children's series that was co-produced in the US, UK, Germany, and the Netherlands, and featured an elderly inventor who created imaginative contraptions that got him and his forest friends (mostly animals and even plant life) into wild adventures. Peter Ustinov provded the voice for the doctor in the English language version. I saw it in the early 80s in syndication, but it aired later in the decade on Nickelodeon's Nick Jr. block of programming.
Here is the good dcotor appearing in "The Remarkable Fidgety River." Enjoy!
