Basil Brush is moving into the digital age with his first online show.
The long-running character will appear in 32 episodes of The Basil Brush Show on Videojug Network’s new comedy channel Quipstar.
The new series begins today (February 16) with episodes airing daily this week to celebrate its launch.
Each instalment of the series will see Basil and his sidekick Mr Stephen go on fun-filled adventures. The pair will be seen jet skiing and will also head out on a safari adventure.
Basil Brush said: “I’m thrilled to have my own online show that viewers can watch all over the world, whenever they want. As a TV veteran it pays to move with the times, and it feels that the time is right for me to conquer the online world. Boom Boom!”
Videojug Networks Executive Producer, Paul Jackson, added: “Basil was the first furry animal to command his own Saturday night TV show back in the 1960s, and I was very fortunate to work on this show at the start of my career.
“I am delighted to be reunited with Basil once again, and to help this talented fox to now conquer the Digi-verse. Good on you Basil, show those pesky cats how it’s done!”
