Cartoon Production Information:

Kindly, bespectacled inventor Doctor Snuggles came to the world via a Dutch-based animation firm, but at heart, the good doctor was thoroughly British. Created by Jeffrey O'Kelly, Doctor Snuggles presented an eccentric, fantastic world where imagination could become reality. In this quaint, quiet hamlet, badgers, foxes and even backyard sheds could talk, and star-hopping rockets could be made entirely from wood.

The title character was a diminutive, balding man with a prominent middle (the better for cuddling), who hopped around his neighboring woods on a custom-built pogo stick. The doctor always made time for friends like his lab assistant Dennis the Badger, housekeeper Miss Nettles, kindly Grannie Toots and her Cosmic Cat, mischievous Knobby the Mouse and homemade robot Mathilda Junkbottom, but his heart lay in his one true calling: inventing. Working inside his living shed, Rickety Rick, Doctor Snuggles built contraptions like his rocket Dreamy Boom Boom and the Multi-Whereabouts Machine, a handy contraption for finding things.

Doctor Snuggles' adventures took him everywhere from outer space to the Amazon, but his travels were nothing compared to those of the globetrotting Uncle Bill, another show regular. The tone of the series was always optimistic and sweet, but not everyone on Doctor Snuggles had such good intentions. The doctor's chief nemesis was the wicked wizard Professor Emerald, but Snuggles also had to deal with the sneaky plots of Willie the Terrible Fox and his thick-witted henchman Charlie Rat.

With such an enormous cast of characters (and we haven't even mentioned good witch Winnie Vinegar Bottle or Woogie the Freckled Camel), it's surprising that they were all introduced in only 13 half-hour episodes. Doctor Snuggles had a lasting impact on children around the world, but since the original run of shows, the doctor's further adventures have been limited to picture books and such. The series continues to air in syndication in many parts of the globe, and like the good optimist he is, Snuggles surely plans to return with brand-new episodes some day.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
