Steve leaves Follyfoot to join the circus but all is not what it seems.
Follyfoot was a co-production between the UK and a German production company. It was originally broadcast between 1971 and 1973. The basis of the series was that Follyfoot Farm looked after retired or hurt animals and was partially staffed by people who had been in some sort of trouble.
It had plenty to say about animal welfare and its target audience was more teenage than young girls going through their pony phase. Mike Noble produced some of his best work on the adaptation that ran in Look-in magazine.
