The Classic Television Series From Gerry Anderson And Roberta Leigh!
Torchy the Battery Boy was the second television series produced by AP Films and Gerry Anderson. It was another collaboration with author Roberta Leigh and was directed by Anderson, with music scored by Barry Gray, art direction from Reg Hill and special effects by Derek Meddings. The second series of 26 episodes were produced by Associated British Pathe for Roberta Leigh. The series follows the adventures of the eponymous boy doll with a battery inside him and a lamp in his head, and his master Mr. Bumbledrop, voiced by Kenneth Connor (who is best known for his work in the Carry On films) who also voiced a number of other characters. Torchy travels by rocket to Topsy Turvy Land where toys can walk, animals can talk and cream buns grow on trees. This special DVD collection contains the complete first and second series - nearly 12 hours of Torchy The Battery Boy fun! All 52 episodes have been digitally restored and are just as delightful to watch today as they were when first broadcast five decades ago.
