Does anyone remember the name of a cartoon that was on in the 90's that had a bunch of animals who wandered across the country looking for a safe place to live... all I remember was there was a fox called fox and a female fox called vixen... but there was loads of animals and the programme was amazing

anyone know it or am I dreaming it up?

omg yeah thats it, wasnt it amazing? really wish they would put it on dvd or something, I'm not ashamed to admit it made me cry nearly every week, especially when the hedgehogs tried to cross the road... boo hoo it was always going to end badly

no way you mean the magazines where you got the plastic animals which magically stuck on to a woodland background?

Kellie

LMAO, yeah! I think I have them in my parents attic in a huge box, there was hundreds of them!

lukey

me too, obviously mine arnt in your parents attic tho... ;) there must be hardcore animals of farthing wood collectors out there... eBays the place! my animals lost there magic stickability after a while tho.

Iv wondered for years if anyone else had watched this program, I miss so many of my childhood programs... they dont make them like rainbow and button moon anymore... possibly for legal reasons there not allowed to let gay pink hippos on tv

its quality programming it taught me about animals, it was a bit bloody tho, reminded me of watership down/ bambi in some respects... did they all die in the end? the hedgehogs did, the snake did, I'm sure rabbits did as well...

lol briiiiiiigggggghhhhhhtttttt eyyyyyyeeeeeesssss... it is v sad and violent... always had a slight fear of rabbits since that, and then the whole my mum telling me my rabbits were killed by a fox when they wernt just topped it all off...

bambi was great, lion king was just as sad though... disney loves killing animals off especially characters mums and dads
