Issi Noho

This was a kids' animation from 1975, except it wasn't actually animated! It was simply a series of still pictures narrated by a male actor, about a magical panda who had been discovered on some waste ground by a group of children. He had some paper tokens in a little pouch round his neck and he'd scribble some symbols on these to make a wish come true for the kids. They got his name from the warning, "ThIS SIde Up. Use NO HOoks" on the side of an old wooden crate!

    Ahh, so that's where his name came from! I thought I was the only person left who remembered this- there was one episode in which Issi tries to help the local milkman remain in buisness by diversifying his service, by enabling him to sell groceries and fruit & veg. as well. He magics a huge load of fresh produce onto the milk float, which becomes so overloaded that nothing can be removed from it! It was a very gentle programme, I loved it.
