Scott, Virgil, Scarlet, Blue & Zelda join forces for Children in Need!

In a warm, nostalgia fest for viewers of all ages, the nation’s best loved puppets and classic children’s TV favourites will be making a big return for the ultimate supergroup music video parody – including Scott and Virgil Tracy, Captains Scarlet and Blue, and Zelda!

The superstar cast of much loved household names that has assembled for this incredible collaboration also includes Basil Brush, Muffin the Mule, Rainbow’s Zippy, George and Bungle, Zig and Zag, CBBC’s Gordon the Gopher, Edd the Duck, Otis the Aardvark, Oucho, Stanley, Dodge and Hacker T Dog, Channel 5’s Milkshake Monkey, The Neighbour’s Cat from Dick and Dom in Da Bungalow, Mongrel’s Marion and Nelson, Buffering’s Larry the Lizard, and Mr Blobby. Together they will join forces for one of the biggest singalongs Children in Need has ever seen – and the Anderson Entertainment team was thrilled to help the project!

Debuting during BBC Children in Need on Friday night on BBC One, viewers will see the who’s who of the puppet world turn up at a music studio for their big moment in the spotlight. Complete with oversized mics and even bigger headphones, it has all the classic elements of a charity music video. No puppet tears in sight!

The BBC Children in Need live show airs on Friday 19 November from 7pm on BBC One.
