It is nearly exactly the same as Sooty & Co, and just as good. The only difference is that the wonderful host and the puppet chums don't run a shop business. Sooty with his two puppet friends Sweep and Soo (no Scampy until Sooty & Co) had many good stories. Most of the stories however I thought in this show were dominated by Matthew Corbett. The stories that I can remember I saw of this show are: Playing cricket, Camping like Scouts, Driving Racing Cars and Waterskiing. The only guest they had was someone called Connie Crighton, and that's it. I'm sure they had more, I would have loved to see the whole show. It was number 38 on The 100 Greatest Kids' TV Shows, and Sooty was on a special Top 10 Puppets list, hosted by Rainbow's Zippy and George. Very good!
