Synopsis

When There Was a Big Band by Grange Calveley

About the Author

Roobarb was created and drawn by Grange Calveley in 1973.

Grange was inspired to create Roobarb by the antics of his own Welsh Border Collie dog. “When our four legged Welsh friend moved in, the first thing that he did was water the rhubarb and from that moment on, we called him Roobarb”.

The BBC commissioned an animated series in 1973, which at the time was the first production of its kind in the UK. Created and written by Grange Calveley, animated by Bob Godfrey and voiced by Richard Briers, it was an immediate success, drawing over 7 million viewers in its first three weeks.

BBC Merchandising issued a number of licenses, most notably to Cadbury for a chocolate bar, and a Roobarb song, which reached number 3 in the charts, was also produced.

Publishers Mogzilla have adapted Grange’s original scripts into a series of colourful books. For the very first time, readers can follow the iconic duo through 32 pages of full colour adventures.
