  • The Sooty Show is a British children's television series, created by Harry Corbett, presented by both him and his son Matthew Corbett, and featuring the voice talents of Marjorie Corbett and Brenda Longman. The programme was initially produced for the BBC from 1955 to 1967, and then for ITV through Thames Television from 1968 until its final episode on 30 November 1992. The show focuses on the mischievous adventures of glove puppet character Sooty and his friends Sweep since 1957, Soo since 1964, and Little Cousin Scampi since 1990, and featured a variety of additional glove puppet characters and guest stars. When the programme premiered on 24 July 1955, it was broadcast in a sketch-based format with a studio audience, and remained so throughout Corbett's era as presenter from 1955 to 1975. After his retirement from entertainment, Matthew retained the format, upon buying the rights to Sooty from his father, until it was decided to change the programme's format in 1981 towards a more sitcom-based format that would take place within a country cottage called "Sooteries", which included a few educational elements and the use of songs and narrations, conducted by Matthew, in various scenes involving the puppet characters only. The Sooty Show proved a success with children's television, creating sequels such as Sooty & Co. in 1993 after the programme's conclusion, several stage shows, and even a spin-off during its later years entitled Learn With Sooty, as well as a collection of VHS and DVDs featuring episodes set around the programme's second format. Ramsbottom the shake first appeared in the 1970s and the voice was by Bill garret the shows model and prop maker who has a very strong Yorkshire accent
