Little Grey Rabbit

1950 | United Kingdom

Little Grey Rabbit was the creation of prolific British writer Alison Uttley (1884 - 1976) who wrote over 100 books the first of which were a series of tales about animals, including Little Grey Rabbit, The Little Red Fox, Sam Pig and Hare. 

The stories were adapted for television and told by Ann Hogarth and Jan Bussell with their glove puppets. First introduced on 8th September 1950 Little Grey Rabbit along with a number of other daytime programmes formed BBC's essential children's output originally titled For The Children but later the more famously remembered Watch With Mother. Little Grey Rabbit returned to the screens 50 years later courtesy of Cosgrove Hall Films as an animated series with Pauline Collins, Hugh Laurie and Andrew Sachs providing voices.
