Mr. Squiggle

Status: Partially Lost

Mr. Squiggle, also known as Mr. Squiggle and Friends, is an Australian puppet TV series that aired from July 1, 1959 to July 7, 1999. It was first a short series on ABC's Children's TV Club and then moved to its own show.

The show aired in various formats, from five minute slots to 30-minute segments during the 40 years of its broadcast. It is one of the most popular Australian children's programs and toured around Australia to entertain several generations.

Though being very popular and being one of the longest running Australian TV programs, many episodes are lost.

It had a few DVD and VHS releases, but those are rare and hard to come by online. However, there are a few clips & episodes around on YouTube.
