Andy Pandy, Teddy and Loobie lou, first aired on British TV in 1950. My brother was frightened of Loobie Lou for some reason and would hide behind the sofa when she came on the tv. I still tease him about it haha!
Wendy Craig stars as the rather dreamy hopeless housewife who is married to a boring dentist with two grown up sons. She is relentlessly pursued by a playboy and finds it hard to resist his advances, though resist she does. Sweet , sad and funny in turns Butterflies is an English classic.

Loved this programme as a child, the programme was part of a BBC children's television series titled Watch with Mother, with a different programme each weekday, most of them involving string puppets. The Flower Pot Men was the story of two little men made of flower pots who lived at the bottom of an English suburban garden. The characters were devised by Freda Lingstrom and Maria Bird.
