Released in November 2009, the following video links most of the beloved children's characters from the BBC, along with some American characters who appear in the UK.
Most of these franchises are puppetry based. That's a rich tradition in British television, with The Thunderbirds best known in America.
For this video, most of the figures are animated using stop-motion techniques, with some "live action" video inserts (such as the Teletubbies and Thunderbirds).
The characters shown in the video connect directly to Scooby-Doo.
This also features a rare cameo from SpongeBob SquarePants!
