Brian Blessed: If I must. Like this?
Roland: Yes thank you Brian. Very nice, very nice. Yes. Ha-ha. So this is where I do me big speech. "So die, all enemies, of the revolution." Yeah. "The end". Ha-ha-ha.

British puppetry at it's finest
12 November 2003 | by zyggy_bakerSee all my reviews

Being British I of course think that Roland Rat is the best puppet show in the world. Roland Rat is of course an English version of The Muppets, but is also taking after another character called Basil Brush and Sooty. "Roland Rat The Series" was actually Roland's first project away from TV-AM. He joined the BBC for loads of money which went on his account but also on the series which also took a year to make. The sketches in this are hilarious especially the "Tale Of Two Cities" and "Dickens Christmas Carol". The show starts off with the title which has Roland driving his infamous pink Ford Anglia known more as the "RatMobile" and entering the studio to a full house and a load of hilarious sketches. Sadly since 1986 it has never been repeated but is on a video cassette somewhere. But there is DVD of Rat On The Road which was one of his TV-AM adventures. But soon once again though you'll be able to follow the further adventures of Roland, Kevin & Errol.
