Barnaby the Bear

< Go BackClick to go back to People.

What is this bear doing on my web site? Well, he had a big impact on my life because the original broadcasts in the 1970's coincided with my time at primary school! Oh, how many times did I have to endure people singing that theme tune to me!

The thing is I didn't like the programme; I must have only ever watched one or two episodes.

My nickname became "Barnaby the Bear" and I wore myself out telling everybody that MY surname only had one "a" in it!

However, the more I protested, the more the name adhered, although by the time I had reached Secondary School, the nickname had been reduced to a much more acceptable "Bear".

Anyway, it seems that Barnaby has been travelling the world and changing HIS name; originally named 'Colargol' in france, he went on to make appearances in many English speaking Countries as 'Barnaby' and 'Jeremy the Bear' in Canada.

In 1960 Olga Pouchine created the stories for her son but it was Albert Barillé, 10 years later that turned the stories into a children's television series.  Together with Polish animator Tadeuzs Wilkoz, a total of 52 episodes were recorded.

Barnaby in England

The English version of Barnaby was produced by Michael Grafton-Robinson, with the voices of Colin Jeavons, Charles Collingwood, Gwenllian Owen and Percy Edwards.
