Budgie the Little HelicopterBudgie the Little Helicopter - Brave and friendly helicopter featured on the animated half-hour children's series BUDGIE THE LITTLE HELICOPTER/ITV/1994-96. This aviation adventure follows the antics of Budgie, the smallest helicopter in the hangar and his adorable copter buddies, Lionel, Pippa and Chuck. They all interact with Harefield Airfield's resident mechanics, Mike and Ken. The series debuted in England and later premiered in America in 1995 on The Fox Network's weekday preschool program, FOX CUBHOUSE as a component series of MAGIC ADVENTURES OF MUMFIE.

The program is based on four children's books written by HRH Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. The books included Budgie, The Little Helicopter; Budgie at Bendrick's Point; Budgie Goes To Sea; and Budgie and the Blizzard. Sarah Ferguson got the idea for her successful children's character while training as a Royal Navy Pilot. Produced by Sleepy Kids PLC, HTV Limited and Fred Wolf Films (U.K).
