Barnaby

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Barnaby the Bear's my name. Never call me Jack or James. Barnaby was sung and narrated by Brian Cant I think? I remember a little bear skipping through a forest singing this song. Animated a bit like The Herbs. It was about 10 minutes long and was shown in the early 70's I think.

    It wasn't Brian Cant singing it but I agree, it was someone similar. It was actually French with an English voiceover. The rest of the words were; I have S(f?)ought my way to fame, Barnaby the Bears my name. Birds taught me to sing, when they took me to their King. First I had to fly, In the sky, so high (x5) So if you want to sing this way, Think of words you'd like to say. I have s(f)ought my way to fame, Barnaby the Bear's my name. Don't ask me how I can remember that, I don't know. Now to remember what I did last week...

    I loved this classic kids tv series in the 70's, Ive always wondered why it was never repeated? Who can forget the signature music, 'Barnaby the bears my name, Never call me Jack or James' I haven't even saw this on DVD, I'd love to show this great show to my 1yr old.
