The main character of the series is a bird, whose full name is the ‘Fiddley Foodle Bim Bam Boodle Oo Diddley-Doodle Oodle Bird’. The character is voiced by Dennis Waterman (actor and singer famous for his roles as Terry McCann in Minder and Detective Sergeant George Carter in The Sweeney). The bird was originally nothing more than just a picture in a book, which was found by a young boy named Algernon. 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 Princess Toto, and his housekeeper, the overly strict Mrs. Grumblebaum.
