The Sooty Show starred none other than the bear himself - Sooty! Sooty and his friends Sweep and Soo all lived together with their human friend Matthew (or if you're really old, Harry).
Harry Corbett first introduced Sooty to the nation in the 1950s but in the 1970s his son Matthew took over the show.
Sooty was a hit with most children and has been an enduring success for over 40 years.
Trivia: Harry H Corbett the actor who played Harold in Steptoe and Son added the extra H to avoid confusion with Sooty's creator.
