television series

Bobinogs (original Welsh title: Bobinogi) is a British children's television programme that was shown on CBeebies. It was first shown in Wales, then the rest of the United Kingdom in 2003. At first, the main characters (Ogi, Bobin and Nib) lived in the hat of a child named Owen (played by David Bursey), and were inanimate without him. Owen was later removed from the series so the characters were always shown living.
