Rag, Tag and Bobtail

Rag, Tag and Bobtail was a children's television programme that ran from 1953 to 1965 as the Thursday's programme in the BBC's programme cycle, Watch With Mother.

All the characters in the show were glove puppets which were created and operated by Sam and Elizabeth Williams. The show's main characters are Rag (a hedgehog), Tag (a mouse) and Bobtail (a rabbit). There are also five baby rabbits that occassionally appeared.

Each episode was short, running just 12 minutes with a total of twenty six episodes made, two of which were never broadcast. Each shot in a single take!

Charles E. Stidwell, David Enders and James Urquhart narrated the show which was written by Louise Cochrane and produced by Freda Lingstrom and David Boisseau. 

The show is rememebred fondly and the stories in Rag, Tag and Bobtail were simple and had no catch phrases, unlike other programmes in the Watch With Mother cycle
