is (or perhaps, was) something of a local celebrity
, making guest appearances at children's events like KidSummer
This can only imply that they're still making episodes of the Polka Dot Door, which can only be bad news.
The minor tragedy of Polkaroo is he doesn't use his Pokemon style voice (where he can only say his own name) to better express his emotion - in the style of White Fang and Black Tooth on the Soupy Sales Show.
I am also fortunate enough to own a plush Polkaroo - he's about the size of a cat, and looks completely authentic. Unfortunately, by virtue of his design his long neck is horrendously weak, meaning he lolls about disturbingly like his spine is broken. Of course, as a kid I wasn't too fussed, given he was one of my largest stuffed toys, and used to hold him by the neck to help bring him to life (as opposed to carrying him around limply like he was dead).
I've heard rumours of a sister show on British TV although I never found out what it was. I doubt they had a Polkaroo, Bungle would probably have eaten him.
