Ripley and Scuff
RIPLEY AND SCUFF Bafta award winner
On CITV Ripley and Scuff travel all over the country in their super powered jet car, visiting towns and schools and meeting children and playing in Ripley's Rascals, their very own rock band! They are joined in each programme by a specially featured act.
Somewhere in England is a very strange valley... The rocks are all slightly mad. A thousand years ago, Merlin was trying to create a ski resort for King Arthur, when he picked up some strange Norweigan trolls in a snow cloud.
"Oh, those rotten trolls have messed it all up!", he shouted.
From that day on, they waited for their mystical leader whose name they found carved in a rock - "Roger Was Ere". So one day, when Roger Becket from Cowgill stopped at the bottom of the valley and shouted "Roger Was Here" - from that moment on, he was King of the Rottentrolls!
Nigel played Aysgarth and various others.
