Magic Roundabout.

Recommended Posts

This morning I saw the end of an advert for "Magic Roundabout" the film, now this used to be a 5 mins prog before the news, how will they stretch it out for a film.

 

Being a 70's kid, this was part of my pre-school memories. (1970's, not 70 years of age )

 

Will you go to the cinema to watch it?

Wasn't there a longer version of it once before? The Blue Cat or something. Might have been on record only.

 

I seem to remember listening to something like it when I was at university.

Sorry, I wasn't being clear.

 

The cast list I posted is the official list for the new movie.

 

 

I haven't found any trace of The Blue Cat online, so maybe I imagined the whole thing.

I've seen the trailer for the film and all i can say is what a load of [censored].

 

Mind you i am too young for the orginals (and the reruns!) and too old to enjoy this version of it!

Saw the Trailer the other day...and at the moment I'm interested in seeing it. That Cast list looks "healthy".

 

Whatever happened to the Mr Benn film they proposed, with John Hannah as the distinguished Mr Benn......? I was looking forward to that!

Dylan had to be the original 'pot-smoking' hippy !

 

Surely, ''Magic Roundabout' was originally in French, then changed to English by Eric Thompson ??

Badger- you're not imagining it- there is a Magic Roundabout film and I think it's called Dougal & the Blue Cat. My younger bruv has it on video so next time I'm there I'll find out what it's called. The blue cat is called Buxton BTW, and the film contains all the original voices and characters, and some great lines.

it was done in narration by a gut called David Tomlinson, or was it Tomkinson?


I'm surprised he had the stomach for it.

The beeb ran it for some considerable time before tumbling that the names and habits of the creatures were cover or street names for drug users and banned drugs used for pleasure??
