The French-British stop motion animated series, The Magic Roundabout, was created in 1963 by Segre Danot with the help of Ivor Wood (who as it happens was born in Leeds, the headquarters for Those Licensing People) and quickly attained cult status here in the UK when it engaged an adult audience who appreciated Eric Thompson’s dry, humorous narrative. The extent of their loyalty to the show was demonstrated when the BBC moved it from its original time slot just before the evening news to an earlier children’s viewing time and it instigated a barrage of complaints. Die-hard fans of the series will be aware that the British story lines bear no resemblance to the original French version and that instead of translating directly from the original, narrator Eric Thompson (father of actress Emma Thompson) chose to deliver his own stories based on what he could see happening on the screen. This resulted in a charmingly bizarre and immensely original series that was an instant hit with both children and adults alike and at its peak attracted an audience of 8 million viewers. The series went on to form the basis of the 2005 CGI animated film of the same name with an all-star cast that included Robbie Williams as the voice of Dougal, Kylie Minogue as Florence, Jim Broadbent as Brian, Joanna Lumley as Ermintrude, Ian McKellen as Zebedee and Bill Nighy as Dylan. The film did not try to emulate the original but rather is inspired by its predecessor and successfully made way for a new era of The Magic Roundabout which children of this generation can enjoy.

From the moment he arrived at the family home back in March 2007, Zuma was into everything and the family could see that Zuma was going to take them on an exciting journey ending up with them running their own business. Indeed the Mum entrepreneur, who had a career in fashion design before her marriage, was so taken by Zuma, she thought his cute, but crazy behaviour would make great stories for her son, who would be born later in that year. “I recall some funny things Zuma would do, which would include putting tools back in the box for my father when he would come to do some DIY at the house”. This was the inspiration for her first book “Zuma likes DIY” and being the creative soul that Sam is, two other books were soon created “Zuma likes to dig” and “Zuma likes to hide”. The books originally intended for Sam’s son, soon became popular with our friends children, who would come to visit their friend Zuma. With this increasing popularity and what was originally intended as a family project for the benefit of Sam’s son turned into a fully fledged business to include a clothing range and toys, dedicated to producing fun, lovely products fully inspired by Zuma, so others can enjoy and share in the love that is their dog Zuma!
