Andy Pandy was a British children's television series, the original incarnation of which premiered on BBC TV on 11 July 1950, as part of the For the Very Young strand (later Watch with Mother ). A puppet who lived in a picnic basket, Andy was later joined by Teddy (a teddy bear) and Looby Loo, a rag doll, who would appear when Andy and Teddy weren't around.
Though only 26 episodes were made, they were repeated continuously until 1970, when, due to the now deteriorating films, thirteen colour episodes were made.
Another set of 52 episodes were made in 2002, now using the stop motion technique instead of strings. The original nursery and garden were expanded to an entire village, with Andy, Teddy and Looby Loo now owning individual houses, and four new characters were introduced- Hissy Missy, a snake, Tiffo, a dog, Bilbo, a sailor, and Orbie, a yellow and blue ball.
