Magic Roundabout
RealMedia: A chat with the creator of The Magic Roundabout

The Magic Roundabout

Taken from the French series Le Manège Enchanté, The Magic Roundabout became an instant success.

Kids all over the country loved to tune in to its 5 minute format to see their favourite shaggy dog Dougal and his band of weird and wonderful friends.

But were the pals all having such an innocent time of it? There has been talk that Dougal's sugarlump fetish was more of a craving for a certain something and just what was in those flowers that Ermintrude kept chewing? You see, you can't take anything at face value anymore.
