N.B. The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends is an animated television series based on the works of Beatrix Potter, featuring Peter Rabbit and other anthropomorphic animal characters created by Potter.
It was originally shown in the UK on BBC between 1992 and 1995.
The show was produced by TVC London for the publishing company Frederick Warne & Co in association with the BBC and the Japanese companies Pony Canyon Inc and Fuji Television Network Inc.
Each episode opens up with a live-action Beatrix Potter, portrayed by actress Niamh Cusack, coming to her farm house out of the rain, sitting down to some tea with her pet rabbit, Peter, and then setting up the featured story. An exception to this is The Tailor of Gloucester episode, which is set at Christmas time. Some of the episodes include storylines from two separate books, either told one after the other or intermingled. The animation style of The World of Peter Rabbit and Friends is very close to Potter’s artwork in the original books. The main title song for the show is “Perfect Day” by Miriam Stockley which you can listen to on our own Home page.
