    Meet cuddly koalas Tingha and Tucker in this quirky, fondly remembered children's series from the 1960s – a cultural touchstone for millions of children (and adults!), the mischievous marsupials had their own fan club, best-selling annuals and hit records to their name!

    Cared for by "Auntie" Jean Morton, Tingha and Tucker – and their hand-puppet chums – had onscreen adventures for eight years, before drawing to a close in 1970. Though many episodes were made, only one was previously known to exist – but the recent discovery of a cache of film material has allowed three more editions to be reconstructed.

    Special Features:
    [] Over three hours of existing film insert material (including several Zoo Club sequences, a young Nigel Mansell, Ilkeston Donkey Derby, baby leopards and much more!)
    [] Tingha and Tucker promotional film
    [] Blackpool: On Stage
    [] Jean Morton interview
    [] Image gallery
    [] PDF material including annuals, articles and memorabilia

    One of my earliest memories is of this on Sunday evenings at my my grandparents & getting a Tingha and Tucker boomerang (Red with yellow logo if I recall), not sure who sent away for it (I suspect my grandmother as I think I got it on a cold winters night on Sunday).

    I don't remember it going all the way to the 70's, pretty much faded away by my very early school years.
