The writer Russell T Davies, later a BAFTA Award-winner for his work on programmes such as Queer as Folk and Doctor Who, worked on the series, writing the script for a comedy dubbed version of the French children's drama series The Flashing Blade.

The series is notable in giving the human and puppet double-act Bodger and Badger their first TV exposure.[1]
