Andy Pandy and Teddy at the shopping centre. Andy and co live in a picnic basket and are a BBC creation, a nice change from Shrek or Disney.
The red theme is topical because today is Red Nose Day and the local school etc is selling merchandise with profits for medical research into SIDS. So, the mid-winter school holdays begin now.
