The Magic Roundabout Collection
Created by Serge Danot in 1965, The Magic Roundabout became a television legend. The five minute slot just before the evening news guaranteed the programme a viewing figure of over eight million. Its laid-back and surreal view of life afforded the programme a heady sixties feel, thereby assuring it cult status.
The programme featured a rather off-the-wall cast. It included Dougal, a shaggy dog who lived on a strict diet of sugar; an eccentric bouncing character called Zebedee, who would announce his arrival with a 'boing'; a rabbit named Dylan who could have been accused of growing something considerably stronger than carrots in his vegetable patch; Ermintrude the pink cow, Florence, Brian the snail and their friends in the Garden. Thus The Magic Roundabout staked its place in Television history.
