The Noddy Shop, also known as Noddy in Toyland in the UK and Australia, or simply Noddy, is a Canadian-American TV series adaptation of Enid Blyton's Noddy created by Rick Siggelkow. The series used recycled footage from the British series Noddy's Toyland Adventures in two part segments during the episodes. It originally aired from September 28th, 1998 to February 16th, 2000 for a total of 66 episodes on PBS Kids, CBC Kids, CBBC, TV Poland, and TVOntario’s children’s block TVOKids.

Two versions of the show were made, the first plainly titled Noddy, in which the Noddy's Toyland Adventures segments were re-dubbed with US voices and new music, and the second version is known as Noddy in Toyland (not to be confused with the 2009 series of the same name) which kept the original UK audio during the Toyland segments.

Availability

Out of the show's 66 episodes, only around nine have been officially released across two VHS tapes (Noddy in Toyland: Noddy and Friends and Noddy in Toyland: Noddy's Magic Video) and one DVD (Noddy in Toyland), all of which were only released in the UK and Australia in small quantities. In total 9 episodes were released on home video, eight of which have been released online. 3 VHS tapes of Noddy, whilst not containing the live action segments, were released in the early 2000s in the US by Polygram Video and USA Home Entertainment, 3 of which have been posted on YouTube by ahatbears. These VHS tapes also had 2 songs on them, but the songs contained on the tapes have not been posted on YouTube.

Besides the 6 episodes previously mentioned and the 9 additional Noddy's Toyland Adventures segments, the episode "Skunked" was uncovered from the "Internet Archive's Understanding 9/11" sub-site, "Something's Lost, Something's Found", "To the Rescue" and "The Tooth Fairy" were found from CBBC (BBC2) Broadcasts from 2000, "Chills and Spills" was found from an original PBS Broadcast, and "Treasure Hunt" was found from an original CBC broadcast.

Also in existence is a promotional CD released in Canada for the show called Noddy Songs that contains several songs from the live-action segments.[1]
