As part of the popular Vintage Beeb range, this is a reissue of the classic 1970s vinyl LP. First published by BBC Records & Cassettes in 1972, it features 14 stories written and read by Johnny Morris, who became enduringly popular in the TV series Animal Magic. Based on the residents of the Bristol Zoo, the stories include 'Charlie and Gladys the Warthogs', 'Hooter the Elephant', 'Lulu the Baby Seal', 'Harum Scarum’s Mistake', and 'Mark and Cark’s New Nest'. Vintage Beeb: classic albums first available as BBC LPs, now available to download for the first time ever.
I grew up listening to this album, but it belonged to my sister so I,ve not heard it in years! I loved Tub-thump the gorilla and Lulu - who will forever be associated with the taste of spagetti bolognese!

I remembered these stories from when I was a child and my own kids now (8 and 11) enjoy them just as much! It's lovely to be able to share these lovely stories with them. Johnny Morris is a national treasure!
4 year old loved it. I used to love animal magic as a child and so nostalgically downloaded this. my daughter loves it.
