   "Monty the dog - Yeah!"
  spacer


  
Monty is a short-sighted dog who wears glasses and has numerous
    misadventures with young Simon and Josie Sprod and their parents,
    Mr and Mrs Sprod. Regardless of his myopia, he's an ever-hungry pooch
    and the series theme song elaborates on this by revealing that he's
    a biscuit-crunching, sausage-munching, wheeling-dealing, custard-stealing,
    barking-yelping, double-helping Monty....

     Monty and Josie Sprod

    The series was adapted from Colin West's popular story books and the
    animation team stuck closely to his designs. Colin's other works include such
    popular titles as "Messy Murray Brown", "Vanessa the Pig with the Wiggly
    Waggly Ears", "Marmaduke the Magic Cat", "What Would You Do with a
    Wobble-dee-woo?" and a series of books starring "Howard" - "Hurry Up Howard!",
    "Everything Happens to Howard", "Hooray for Howard!", and "Howard Helps out".

    The show was animated by the folks at Ealing Animation, who are perhaps
    better known for their BAFTA-winning adaptation of Old Bear and Friends and
    that marvellous mexican hero El Nombre...
