This stop motion children’s television series was produced by FilmFair for Thames Television. Creator and writer Keith Chatfield narrated the series, and Ivor Wood directed it.

The residents of Hattytown were anthropomorphic hats, with the style of each hat indicating  the ethnicity, attitude, and occupation of the character.

For example, Bobby, the policeman, resembled the hat of a constable, while Sancho resembled a sombrero.

Buildings in the town were also hat-shaped with each hat representing the function of the building, or representing the inhabitant.
