 +
| An important distinction came to light upon the discovery of “Noddy and The Moon”. That distinction was the actual length of a Noddy episode.
 +
 +
All 6 Walton Home Film Releases that contain Noddy episodes are only 4 minutes in length, while “Noddy and The Moon” was found to have a length of 14 minutes.
 +
 +
To summarize, while the Walton Home Film Releases contain  complete Noddy episodes, their completeness (or the lack thereof)remains exclusive to those versions; this includes a lack of audio.

Status: Partially Found

The Adventures of Noddy was the first TV series to feature Enid Blyton's famous character Noddy. It was a string-puppet show that ran on ITV from 1955-1956[1] and BBC from 1955 to 1963.[2] The series was narrated by Enid Blyton (author and creator of the Noddy Franchise).

The entire series is preserved within the BBC Archives, and footage occasionally gets used in documentaries and clip shows. Although episodes of other Noddy shows have been found, very little footage of the 1955 series resurfaced online.

In fall of 2017, part of the episode "Noddys Camera" was found to be shown in a VHS documentary special hosted by Phillip Schofield titled Best Children's TV of the Decade: '60s and '70s. In addition, some footage was also shown in a 1957 TV advert for "Kellogg's Sugar Ricicles".

Furthermore, a Youtube user named "Horipet" uploaded two episodes around late 2018. These episodes were "Noddys Taxi" and "The Enchanted Roller Skates" but without audio. It was not until late 2020 that a team on the Lost Media Wiki undertook finding a 16mm Film reel of "Noddy and The Moon", it was recovered successfully.

On September 5th, 2020, another commercial for Kellogg's Sugar Ricicles by "{insert channel name here}" was uploaded showing the same Noddy puppet from the series.

One month later, the same user who had discovered "Noddys Camera" 2 years prior emerged with 2 more episodes. These episodes were titled "How Noddy Came To Towntown" and "The Runaway Train", these episodes are currently awaiting transfer.

The Golliwogs Neutral/Antagonists A group of mischievous dolls that enjoy causing trouble around Noddy and the citizens of ToyTown. The only Gollywog that was friendly was Mr. Golly (the owner of the ToyTown Garage). These characters created controversy due to being based on racist imagery, but they managed to stick around in the Noddy series as late as 1974 before being replaced by The Goblins. One of them appear in the episode "Noddy's Taxi".

Episode List

Important note
The information presented here on The Adventures of Noddy is very misconstrued, and needs a lot of work.

There are many different sources with opposing information regarding what is listed.

Important Note, as of 10/29/2020
An important distinction came to light upon the discovery of “Noddy and The Moon”. That distinction was the actual length of a Noddy episode.

All 6 Walton Home Film Releases that contain Noddy episodes are only 4 minutes in length, while “Noddy and The Moon” was found to have a length of 14 minutes.

To summarize, while the Walton Home Film Releases contain complete Noddy episodes, their completeness (or the lack thereof)remains exclusive to those versions; this includes a lack of audio.
