MORTIMER AND ARABELLE
In terms of the complete design
and look of the show , and quality
of manipulation, these two series
for the BBC must count as the
high spot of my television
puppet work to date.
Quentin Blakes illustrations
for Joan and Lizza Aitkins books
provided the quirky wobbly look
of both the sets and puppets. 24 episodes shot over two Summers
at the BBC’s
Visual Effects Stage at Acton.
A KIND OF MAGIC
MUPPET TYPE LIVE VOICE
Central Televisions Light Entertainment
Magic show starring top illusionist
There were many Star Guests
including Linda Lussardi as
Waynes regular glamorous assistant.
During the 3 series shot in the early
90s I was every magicians nightmare: ‘Ringo Rabbit’ a rabbit in the hat that
answers back! Shot at Nottingham's Lenton Lane
Television Studios in front of a
live adult audience.
