The first series saw Bodger working at Troff’s Nosherama, where his badger was unknown to the other characters. The second series was set in the Letsby Avenue Junior School; Bodger worked as the caretaker for the school and there was general antagonism between him and the schoolchildren – a large cast of children – and the headteachers Mrs Trout (‘Fish-Face’) and later Mrs Bogart (‘Bogey’). Later series featured Bodger moving to other jobs and began to feature less of Bodger, concentrating more on Badger and his friend Mousey. She was a not overly intelligent mouse, who unsurprisingly had a fondness for cheese.
