Created by Enid Blyton in 1949, Noddy is one of the most beloved UK children’s characters, having entertained families for generations with stories set in the colourful world of Toyland.

Enthusiastic and inquisitive, Noddy is joined by friends new and familiar including his iconic car as well as Big Ears and Bumpy. The voice of Noddy is provided by Louis Ashbourne Serkis in his first leading voice role.
