Torchy the Battery Boy (1958-1959)

Torchy the Battery Boy


15 minutes

Kid's Show  

Torchy the Battery Boy was a kid's television series produced by AP Films and Gerry Anderson, running from 1958–1959. The series followed adventures of an eponymous boy doll puppet with a battery inside him and a lamp in his head, and his master Mr Bumbledrop, voiced by Kenneth Connor.

Each show's titles started at night with a rocket outside a cottage and Torchy sitting inside it. It would take off with lots of sparks and then would begin the theme tune which would tell you about Torchy and his magic light as the rocket went through space. In the first episode we are introduced to Mr Bumbledrop who had lots of toys and loved children and his dog, Pom-Pom, a white French poodle with straight hair which needs curlers in every night. Also to Bossy Boots, a nasty little girl who likes pulling her toys to pieces but a trip to Topsy Turvy land reforms her.
