Name that show!

The streaming chat brought up memories of some shows from my childhood in the 80s but I can’t think of what they were called!

I guess this initial question might be for the Brits but I thought the thread could be used more generally for people trying to figure out the name of movies, shows, music etc.

  1. It was either a stop motion animation or pupper show about animals that lived near a deep dark wood. I remember a baby owl got lost and nearly got eaten by some crows.

  2. A cartoon about adventures with a magic scientist who, amongst other things had a submarine that was also a whale.

  3. A live action show with animated elements that involved an evil Queen. I remember an ice spider spinning a web in a window but not much else.

Does anybody have any ideas about any of these???

Is the first one Willo the Wisp?

Not sure on the others.

Number 2 sounds a bit like Doctor Snuggles? It was narrated by Peter Ustinov. One of those episodes was written by Douglas Adams

That was it! Thank you, people questioned my memory and my sanity over that.

Sounded like Orm and Cheep to me.

That’s it! Thank you. Nobody other than my sister who also kinda vaguely remembered it had any idea what I was trying to describe

I remember that particular episode too. We had a video with a couple of episodes, that being one of them.

Not to discourage posting here on NAR, but there’s a subreddit called TipOfMyTongue that’s for questions like these!
