Make Way for Noddy (partially found PBS Kids version of British children's TV series; 2005)
Make Way for Noddy is a musical CGI animated series for children, produced by Chorion of the United Kingdom in conjunction with SD Entertainment in the United States. Based on Enid Blyton's Noddy character, it originally aired in 12-minute segments as part of the Milkshake programme on Britain's Five, from September 2, 2002, to June 16, 2007. It was repeated until the beginning of 2016.
In 2005, a half-hour version was launched in the United States on PBS. This version combined each 12-minute segment with new material. Along with the story episodes featuring Noddy and his friends, the PBS format included a segment titled Say it with Noddy, a music video and footage of British television presenter Naomi Wilkinson from Milkshake! Say it With Noddy featured Noddy learning various foreign language words from a robot named Whizz (voiced by Matt Hill). Although most of the Noddy characters had been re-dubbed to remove their English accents, Naomi spoke with a strong English accent, and used British English words and phrases in conversation.
While none of the Naomi segments from this version have showed up in any form on the Internet, this version became the basis for a version that aired on Korean television which featured Dorothy Nam, which can be viewed below. This version is still in English, with Nam switching between Korean and English.
