Status Lost

The Magic Adventures of Mumfie is a lost, early-1990s animated or puppeteered pilot, created by Britt Allcroft at Shepperton Studios. It was the basis for the later-spawned, popular Mumfie animated series.

History

In the early 90's, Allcroft decided to adapt the Katherine Tozer Mumfie novels for a new generation of children. She first decided to film/animate it at Shepperton Studios, before scrapping it for the series it is known as today.

Discoveries

The only remaining image of Mumfie is an image on the Mumfie Facebook page. Originally, Mumfie wore a blue jacket with a yellow collar and eight buttons, and Scarecrow had ears. The art style also looked closer to the Katherine Tozer books.

This doesn't look like puppets at all. If you look closely at the photo you can see that both characters may actually drawings making it look more like it was made with some kind of stop motion or cut out animation. For instance if you look closely at the Scarecrow's hands, you can see that they are drawn directly onto the rocks he is leaning on.

i agree. the shading did throw me off, cause it made them look more 3d than your average animation, but yeah no it still looks animated :0

But is the picture meant to be a screenshot or concept art?
