So, was Bod a boy, or was Bod a girl? I'm still not sure. But, problematic gender-divination aside, this series was a classic of low-tech 70's children's TV. Cheeky androgynous Bod, flirty French Aunt Flo, Farmer Barleymow, Frank the Postman... all of them are amusing in their own special ways. The only thing wrong with this video is the absence of Alberto the frog and his animal band, and their games of guess-the-milkshake-flavour.

I remember watching Bod at primary school. Zero plot? Who cares! It was brilliant fun to sit back and be soothed into relaxtion by John Le Mesuriers silky smooth narration. Shame about Alberto Frog not being there though.

Just showing this to my daughters (6 & 4). They are loving it and calling out all the answers to the questions - something they rarely do.

I had told the eldest that noone knew Bod's gender, but she got it in about three minutes. In one episode, Aunt Flo and Farmer whatsit receive a letter saying "three gentlemen will arrive for bed and breakfast". When the gentlemen arrive, one is Bod. So, something that has puzzled me for 30 years is solved.

I still think Mr Benn is the best ever, hence 4 stars only.

I never thought I'd see the great Bod ever again until I discovered this video..it's a shame that Alberto the Frog isn't on it as he was great, but the music and characters are still fantastic and it was a total pleasure to watch. Even my mates at work are thrilled at seeing Bod again!

Even still today Bod thrills infants with its simplistic animation and surreal storylines. Great tunes to identify each character, who could forget humming along to the tune of PC Copper....pa papa pumm.......
Brilliant even when you're 25!
