How Mumfie looks in the series.

In 1975, Mary Turner and John Read adapted Katherine Tozer's Mumfie books into a television series entitled Here Comes Mumfie, using puppets to tell the stories.

Only half of an episode has been uploaded to YouTube, and the theme song to the show appears on a few children's CDs. Nobody knows why the show has never been re-released, possibly due to the Britt Allcroft adaptation, Magic Adventures of Mumfie, becoming more popular.

Ironically, some plots of the 70's episodes, such as "Things That Go Bang!" and "Scarecrow's Instant Birthday", were recycled into episodes of the Britt Allcroft series, and Nero's personality was also used for The Black Cat character.
