Plot

The main character of the show was a bird, who's full name was the "Fiddley Foodle Bim Bam Boodle Oo Diddley-Doodle Oodle Bird". The character was voiced by Dennis Waterman. It was originally nothing more than a picture in a book, which was found by a young boy named Algernon, voiced by Clinton Portis. He wished that the bird would come to life, and when the wish came true they set out on an adventure with Algernon's friends, the eternally hungry Saucy McFoodlefist, and his housekeeper, the overly strict Mrs. Grumblebaum. The aim of the mission was to find Algernon's lost parents, two members of the Potty Explorer's club- Carzy and Maudy. They were lost exploring in a seive. However, Algernon's dastardly Uncle Arbathnot was out to ensure that their mission did not succeed, and also to seize a mysterious treasure chest. He was assisted by a muscle-man named Damage, a Frenchman named Flannel, and a pirate named Pierre Head, who, like most pirates, was accompanied by a parrot-a wise-cracking green one. The show featured a guest appearance from Cilla Black, who voiced the President of the Potty Explorer's Club.
