Share some love

This year Roobarb and Custard celebrate 40 years on the telly and you can catch up with them on FIVE. Roobarb and Custard are British children’s television characters; their original animated TV series was shown on BBC.

Created and written by Grange Calveley and directed by Bob Godfrey, each story is narrated by Richard Briers; the films are five minutes duration and thirty episodes were made – each introduced with Johnny Hawksworth’s now famous theme tune.

It’s hard to believe that Roobarb has been 40 years on the telly. I really don’t have a favourite episode, but I wonder if you do?

In celebration of forty years, let us know what’s your favourite Roobarb episode.
