Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Created by Jonathan Hodge, the British cartoon series Fiddley Foodle Bird featured veteran actor-singer Dennis Waterman as the voice of the title character. The plot was set in motion by the son of an explorer couple, who upon finding a magic book, made a wish, bringing a picture of the Fiddley Foodle Bird to life. Blessed with the ability to change his color and size at will, the titular bird led his new human friend on all sorts of merry adventures. Assembled by H.A.P.P.Y. Productions, the ten-minute Fiddley Foodle Bird episodes first aired over BBC1 in 1991.
