The Magic Roundabout is a popular French-British show created by Serge Danot in the 1960s and was aired in the UK with narration from Eric Thompson. In the US, the show didn't air until the 1980s when it started airing on the old Nickelodeon show "Pinwheel", this version lacked narration and the characters had separate voices and also followed the French scripts as opposed to the British, which the actors, with one exception, are currently unknown, they are likely to be actors from Pinwheel. Currently only 10 episodes have been resurfaced. Some differences had Dylan being named Flappy, like in the French dub, Mr. McHenry being renamed Mr. Young, and Mr. Rusty being given Mr. McHenry's name.
