    song from Neil Innes...

    Made imperfectly

    The erstwhile Raggy Dolls are a group of toy dolls manufactured incorrectly
    at Mr Grimes soft toy factory. One by one, they find their way into the factory
    reject bin. But there's absoloutely nothing wrong with being different, and
Hi-Fi, Back-To-Front, Sad Sack, Princess, Claude, Lucy and Dotty are
    soon having all sorts of jolly adventures
and fruitful encounters together.

    In fact, they had 112 adventures together between 1986 and 1994. And now
    Revelation Films want to re-introduce us to the first of them...

The Hound says...
     "The Raggy Dolls have perennial appeal. It's okay to be different, we're told,
      everyone can be lasting friends regardless of their apparent shortcomings.
      The dolls' bond is so strong, in the episode "The Special Offer" they
      work fearlessly to prevent their separation in a cut-price toy sale. And
      that gets The Hound thinking, were Buzz and Woody and their Toy Story
      pals skulking in the very same Reject Bin, all those years ago...?"
