[[caption-width-right:240:Hello, Noddy!]]
Britain's answer to ''EekTheCat''. ''Noddy's Toyland Adventures'' is a [[StopMotion toymation]] cartoon first broadcast on Creator/TheBBC in 1992, and ended in 2001. In case you don't know who Noddy was, then it will be explained. Noddy was originally seen for the first time in a series of books written by Enid Blyton (''Famous Five'', ''The Enchanted Wood'', ''The Magic Faraway Tree'', ''The Wishing Chair'') between 1950 and 1962. Also, this was not the first time Noddy's adventures had been adapted for television - at least three other stop-motion series had preceded it, the first airing all the way back in the mid-1950s.

The show and the books follow the adventures of Noddy, a little wooden doll who wears a NiceHat and drives a little yellow car that goes PuttPutt. He somewhat echoes [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Mario]], as does his clothing. He lives next door to a TricksterArchetype little teddy bear called Master Tubby Bear, who lives with Mr. and Mrs. Tubby Bear, and, of course, Noddy's girlfriend, Tessie Bear! Noddy's best friend besides her is Big Ears, who is ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. He's got big ears. The Toyland policeman is called Mr. Plod, who most of the time asks Noddy whether he can be Noddy's Special Constable.

You'd think there's NoAntagonist in the cartoon, would you? Well, think again! There are twin goblins, who like to cause mischief around Toyland by stealing ... but they never do anything that would [[NoOneShouldSurviveThat ordinarily kill a person]], they just ruin Noddy's life for whatever reason! At the end of the episode, they get a punishment behind bars, which they deserve!

The series was also broadcast on PBSKids and ToonDisney in America, with the cartoon getting sandwiched by a live action show that takes place in a toy store known as the Noddy shop. The characters got American voices, except Noddy and the Skittles. Although this show was broadcast in America, the VHS releases still made it to Britain.

In 2001, a {{CGI}} spinoff- ''Make Way For Noddy''- premiered. It was a UK-Canada co-production and the producer was Sabella-Dern. As a result, the North American dub of the CGI show used the talents of TheOceanGroup. In the US, a short segment, ''Say It With Noddy'', was pinned on to the show to teach Spanish. And in 2011 some of the characters, notably Tessie Bear, were given a redesign.

----
!!This show contains the following tropes:
* AbsenteeActor: Some characters are absent in the CGI spin offs. Miss Pink Cat also does not appear in the video games.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Miss Pink Cat, while still occasionally retaining her pompous side, is noticeably nicer in ''Make Way For Noddy'' acting as the owner of Toyland's LocalHangout. Similarly Tubby is less obnoxious and spoiled.
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Taken to the extreme with Master Tubby Bear, who likes to sometimes cause trouble.
* BrattyHalfPint: Master Tubby Bear.
* CatchPhrase:
** Noddy: That's very naughty!
** Big Ears: Oh my goodness!
** Master Tubby Bear has the same CatchPhrase as Norman Price from ''FiremanSam'', another BBC cartoon. Aw mam!
** Mrs. Tubby Bear: Now, Master Tubby Bear, X may Y, but Z.
** Mr. Wobbly Man: Do be careful, Noddy!
** Mr. Plod: '''HALT IN THE NAME OF PLOD!''' The name of Plod was partly because most police officers say "HALT IN THE NAME OF THE LAW", but he keeps getting it all muddled up!
*** In one episode, Noddy accidentally lands in Topsy-Turvytown after touching Big Ears' mirror, and Sly and Gobbo show up, leading to this exchange:
---->'''Sly:''' HALT IN THE NAME OF SLY!!!
---->'''Gobbo:''' And, err... ME!!!
** Gobbo: Such mischief!!!
** Various characters: Oh dear!
* CatsAreMean: Miss Pink Cat could get pretty bossy sometimes, but she's otherwise a nice cat.
* CharacterFocus: ''Toyland Adventures'' gave prominent use to the supporting cast, but the stories still focused mainly on Noddy. ''Make Way For Noddy'' uses ADayInTheLimelight more often, with more episodes Noddy is a supporting character to another's dilemma.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Mr. Wobbly Man.
* CoolOldGuy: Big Ears.
* CulturalTranslation: In France, the cartoon was called "Les Adventeurs le Oui Oui" (literally meaning ''The Adventures of Noddy''), whilst the Japanese version is called "Konichiwa Noddy". (literally meaning ''Hello Noddy'', by analogy with ''HelloKitty'').
* TheCutie: Tessie Bear.
* DitzyGenius: Big Ears is a bit befuddled, but still probably the smartest person in Toyland.
* {{Expy}}: What does Noddy look like? PajamaSam or SuperMario? Your choice.
* EverybodyLaughsEnding: Done in some episodes. It's a cartoon, after all.
* EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench: Miss Pink Cat speaks with a French accent in the British dub, but she is voiced by the girl [[TalkingToHimself who does all the voices for the females]], [[CrossDressingVoices as well as Noddy]].
* FrenchJerk: Miss Pink Cat at her worst can be rude, uptight and bossy. She's probably more consistently a French JerkWithAHeartOfGold however.
* FriendlyEnemy: The goblins have the odd kinder moment.
* FurryConfusion: Quite noticably. Bumpy Dog acts like a real dog, but what does Miss Pink Cat (among other animal characters in the show) act like? A human!
* TheGrinch: Miss Pink Cat, Sammy Sailor and the goblins all act as this in the ChristmasSpecial. Santa [[TookALevelInKindness gets round all of them]] by the end of the episode.
* TheHyena: Sly and Gobbo.
* InspectorJavert: Some episodes have Mr Plod bothering Noddy after circumstances lead him to believe he is up to mischief.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Mr Plod and Miss Pink Cat are rather self important and quick to turn on Noddy, but well meaning otherwise. Tubby has odd moments of this too.
* KarmaHoudini: Averted. The goblins will always get locked up near the end, and they deserve their punishment after the credits roll.
** Played straight in the opening to ''Make Way For Noddy'', where the two are shown escaping out of jail and hiding at Noddy's party, leaving wonder as to how much punishment they exactly go through anyway.
* LicensedGame: The first ever Noddy video games were released on the Amiga (but not on the {{SNES}}, unfortunately) in Britian in 1992 and 1993. Then in 1997, another videogame, called the Magic of Toytown was released, and there was a free LivingBooks clone inside. It was compatible with Windows 95, 98 and ME, but not with XP. In 1999, there was yet another video game based on the cartoon, called ''Playtime in Toyland'' (''Let's Get Ready for School'' in Britian) which was compatible with Windows XP. There was a CrowningMomentOfFunny in one game, when Master Tubby Bear would sometimes draw funny pictures to annoy Noddy. Both games use [[AdobeFlash Macromedia Director]]. Also in 1999, there was a videogame for the PlayStation, Noddy's Magic Adventure, where Sly and Gobbo stole a magician's wand and decided to use it to cause trouble around Toyland. The game was released first in [[IAmVeryBritish the United Kingdom]], but it did get a release in France as well. There was a game for the GameBoyColor in the same year, called ''Noddy and the Birthday Party'', where Noddy had to prepare for Big Ear's birthday in time.
** EdutainmentGame: Noddy: Detective for a Day for the V-Smile console.
* LighterAndSofter[=/=]DenserAndWackier: ''Make Way For Noddy''. Not that the books or ''Toyland Adventures'' remotely neared dark or mature material themselves, but the CGI series clearly aims more to be an EdutainmentShow for an even younger audience.
* LivingToys: A bigger offender than ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory''.
* TheKiddieRide: Several models, all of them are of Noddy's yellow car (the latest one, a carousel, still has the yellow car as one of the figures for kids to ride in). Evidently, the ride license changed hands several times from Bell Fruit to Amutec to OMC before finally resting in the hands of RG Mitchells, who promptly got bought over by Jolly Roger Rides. It can be said that the Noddy rides' popularity are only second to that of WesternAnimation/PostmanPat
* MeaningfulName: We dare you to find a character who ''doesn't'' live up to his or her name!
* MouthyKid: Noddy has nothing against starting arguments against adults or even the local bob (granted most of the time, they really aren't much more mature than he is).
* NiceGirl: Tessie Bear.
* NiceHat
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Sly and Gobbo are usually just thieves and troublemakers. In the VillainEpisode "The Goblin's Stopwatch" however, they happen upon a magic stopwatch and use it to freeze the whole of Toyland (par Noddy).
* OurGoblinsAreDifferent: Sly and Gobbo act more like gremlins than goblins.
* SouthernBelle: Miss Pink Cat in the US dub.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Sly and Gobbo.
* ThrowTheDogABone: Everyone, even the goblins, gets a HappyEnding in the ChristmasEpisode. This tradition is repeated in the CGI series.
* ToyTime: An example not from a video game, although the series did have video games.
* TricksterArchetype: Master Tubby Bear.
* UndyingLoyalty: At least two episodes involve Noddy being falsely accused for the loss of someone's belongings. Only Big Ears and Tessie try to prove him innocent.
* WomenAreWiser: Downplayed example. Tessie Bear is more sensitive and tactful than Noddy at times, but has moments she is just as naive and careless. Most of the other females are similar. Big Ears is the most consistent ReasonableAuthorityFigure, and even he can be fallible.
