Raggy Dolls

The Raggy Dolls was produced from 1986 to 1994 over 11 series, comprising 112 episodes.

The Raggy Dolls were seven reject toys from Mr Grimes' Soft Toy factory cruelly cast aside into the Reject Bin as a result of different manufacturing faults. They came to life when no one was around and went on many adventures, where their individual "disabilities" were put to use.

Theme Tune

Music for the show was provided by the narrator, Neil Innes.

Lyrics

It's not much of a life when you're just a pretty face.
Just to be whoever you are is no disgrace.
Don't be scared if you don't fit in,
Look who's in the reject bin!

It's the Raggy Dolls, Raggy Dolls,
Dolls like you and me.
Raggy Dolls, Raggy Dolls,
Made imperfectly.

So if you got a bump on your nose,
Or a lump on your toes,
Do not despair.
Be like the Raggy Dolls,
And say I just don't care.

'Cause Raggy Dolls, Raggy Dolls,
Are happy just to be...
Raggy Dolls, Raggy Dolls,
Dolls like you and me!

It's not much of a life when you're just a pretty face.
Just to be whoever you are is no disgrace.
Look around and you will find,
People of every kind.

Like the Raggy Dolls, Raggy Dolls,
Dolls like you and me.
Raggy Dolls, Raggy Dolls,
Made imperfectly.

So if you're not at ease with your nobbly knees
And your fingers are all thumbs.
Stand on your two left feet,
And join our Raggy Doll chums.

'Cause Raggy Dolls, Raggy Dolls,
Are happy just to be...
Raggy Dolls, Raggy Dolls,
Dolls like you and me!
