Welcome to Fabuland® the happy home of Edward Elephant, Wilfred Walrus,
Lionel Lion, Bonnie Bunny, Hannah Hippopotamus, Mike Monkey, Joe Crow
Catherine Cat and many other animal friends. This series was based upon the
popular LEGO® figures and sets, but wasn't overwhelmed by its commercial
origins. Indeed, with some jolly design and animation from FilmFair and some
equally effective voicework lead by Bernard Cribbins, this little series stood
proudly on its own stickle legs. Stories were simple, frivolous and fun and
Fabuland® itself was presented as a bright busy place with an airport,
docks and more - rather like something out of a Richard Scarry book.
Edward himself was a rather hesitant elephant, keen to take part in things,
but always cautious to the last...
It starts off with Bonnie Bunny, Maximillian Mouse and Edward Elephant having a quiet breakfast in the garden when Joe Crow flies over them in his plane as he gets some early morning practice for a display of daredevil flying. This impresses Max but Bonnie can't bear to watch. Joe's flying is so breathtaking that it takes Edwards breath away, causing him to get hiccups.
It starts out with Boris Bulldog walking through the town, delivering some post and he has something special to deliver, an invitation for Bonnie, Edward and Max to Lionel Lions fancy dress party where there'll be a prize for the most unusual costume. They receive the letter and Max reads it out to Bonnie and Edward, the idea of the contest makes them think of what they'll dress up as, Max decides that he'll dress up as a car and walks off making car noises. Bonnie comments "How's he going to be a car?" to which Edward replies "Probably going to grow wheels," Max returns in a car costume saying "Beep beep" and 'drives' in-between Bonnie and Edward.
