was a British cartoon that ran from 1989 to 1990, about the adventures of a schoolgirl (voiced by Su Pollard) who has a set of magic crayons. Whatever she draws comes to life, in a manner similar to Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings
. Penny and her friend Dennis have adventures, get into scrapes, and use her powers to foil bullies and bank robbers alike.
Penny Crayon provides examples of:
- Achilles' Heel: Water washes out the objects Penny creates.
- Art Initiates Life: The show's premise.
- As You Know: The nasty twins talking to each other in "Treasure Hunt":
Twin 1: Waste of time that'll be, because they'll never find any treasure!
Twin 2: No they won't! We've set lots of rotten clues, all leading to nothing!
- Catch Phrase: Dennis. "Owh, Penny, you are clever!"
- Ear Worm: The theme tune.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Penny is voiced by Su Pollard, famous from Hi-de-Hi!.
