Status: Partially Lost

Created by the late Pat Hutchins, Titch is a British stop-motion animated series based on the books of the same name.

This series had a total of 39 episodes produced by Hutchins Film Company between 1997 to 2001 and was aired on different children's channels in the United Kingdom, most particularly CITV and Channel Five. Reruns of Titch were too common after its original run before being taken from the air after 2006.


The overall premise of Titch involved the 'too young, too little' title character enthusiastically trying to help out or accompany his older siblings and parents, and generally failing. Gently comedic chaos followed.

Unlike many programmes of the time, Titch had a fairly minimalist style, using simple set designs, a small cast of puppets and a lack of voice acting. The late Peter Jones provided the narration, who passed soon before the show's production was completed, leaving Paul Vaughan to take over his role for the remaining episodes.


A majority of the episodes for the programme can be found on various sources, including Hutchins' Vimeo page, recordings on YouTube alongside VHS and DVD releases of the show. However, the remaining episodes as listed below are yet to be uncovered and archived.
