Sara & Hoppity

This was a children's TV show in the 60s and 70s. Hoppity was a wooden puppet with one leg shorter than the other (poor thing). That didn't stop him singing though, with the theme tune going along the lines of, "Dear old hoppity, dear old hoppery..." And whenever his singing slowed down, Sara the girl in the show would use a big key to wind him up again (phew!).

    One of my favourites, although the old auntie used to really frighten me. Hoppity was a goblin toy, so the story went. I remember one episode where he replaced the cream in some cakes with toothpaste in order to teach a greedy boy a lesson.
