Bodger and Badger

1 9 8 9 – 1 9 9 9 (UK)
124 x 15 minute episodes

Odd job man Simon Bodger (Andy Cunningham) has a highly unusual pet and best friend – a badly behaved, beret-wearing, talking Badger (who is obsessed with mashed potato).

Bodger has a variety of jobs throughout the series – a chef at a restaurant called Troff’s Nosherama, handyman at Letsby Avenue Junior School (under fierce headmistress Mrs “fish-face” Trout), handyman at the Chessington World of Adventures (a theme park and zoo), and running the Seagull’s Rest Bed and Breakfast in Puddleford – but Badger is always getting him into trouble.

Badger later gained some puppet pals – Mousey (a mouse), Luigi (another badger) and China (a dog).

This BBC series aired on Wednesday afternoons between 1989 and 1999.
