On Sunday, the BBC’s Blue Peter programme featured a segment on the cartoons of Looney Tunes cartoonist Joe Johnston.
The BBC says it’s “not the first time we’ve heard of the man who made the Blue Peter show”.
It has a long history of publishing cartoons, with the likes of Bertie Wooster, Sir Peter Quill, Miss Piggy and Miss Manners all being included in the programme.
But it’s Johnston who really struck a chord with audiences in the 1960s.
He became one of the most recognisable cartoonists in the world.
The programme was commissioned by the BBC in the early 1970s and featured Johnston in a role as a detective.
Johnston was the first cartoonist to be credited for a theme song, a title that would soon become synonymous with the show.
And the BBC is not the only broadcaster to use the name of Johnston, as the BBC has used Looney Tune songs on the show for years.
“We have never been asked to make a song for Blue Peter, but if the BBC were to ask us to make one, we would be delighted to,” said BBC Radio 4’s Peter Smith.
Johnston’s Blue-and-white cartoons have long been a favourite of children’s programmes.
There’s a song called Blue Peacock and there’s a Blue Peasant who loves to dance.
The show has become a popular source of entertainment for children, particularly those in schools and families.
In 2016, the show was shown in more than 1.7 million schools in more English-speaking countries.
The song was played at every stage of the show’s production, including previews and previews of each episode.
There are now more than 30 episodes, which have been re-edited and re-released as episodes.
But Johnston has been a part of the Blue Pease since its inception.
“The show has always been a bit of a legacy for me, even before I started making cartoons,” he said.
It’s just you. “
And that’s one of those things that you can’t really do.
It’s just you.
You get the job done.”
