a 1996 BBC television series aimed at preschool children. It starred Richard Coombs as Raggs, Francis Wright (Art Attack) as Shelley and Rebecca Nagan (Rosie and Jim) as Woolie. It was directed by Vivienne Cozens and shot at Grip House Studios. The stated aim was to "have the puppets teach children about their emotions and feelings in a way that relates to them." The show featured puppetry, animation and live-action scenes...A recycled homemade model house, known as "Hotch Potch House", hence the name, spins round once and the camera focuses on a different bit of it which indicates something.
