Title card.

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]

Although episodes of other Noddy shows have been found, very little footage of the 1955 series resurfaced.

Part of an episode was shown in a VHS documentary special hosted by Phillip Schofield: Best Children's TV Of The Decade: '60s and '70s.

In addition, footage was also shown in a 1957 TV advert for "Kellogg's Sugar Ricicles".
