Watch out The Magic Roundabout!
Hilltop Hospital is thoroughly delightful. I saw one episode and was hooked! (I'm 35!) How many other children's programmes - let alone one like this aimed at preschoolers - would include an anaesthetist? The plot, like any hospital drama, focuses of the staff, rather than the patients. Nurse Kitty has the hots for Dr Matthews (the dog), who in turn fancies Surgeon Sally, who is simply married to her job! Celia Imrie was an excellent choice for the voice of this hippo.

Having worked in a hospital myself, this is as true-to-live as it could be for children this age. For example, in one episode, Dr Matthews is concerned about a patient with a lazy eye and seeks advice for using patches etc, where Surgeon Sally explains there's a "perfectly simple operation" and he should save time.

However, this show is terrific even at an adult level, and I anticipate it becoming more popular than The Magic Roundabout ever was!
