Basil Brush

National treasure, Basil Brush needs no introduction. He's one of the most well-loved characters in modern kids TV programming, first appearing on ITV in 1963. For twelve years he had his own series on BBC The Basil Brush Show and he's still going strong.

2017 and 2018 saw him hobnobbing with a whole range of stars. He was in panto and starred on The Chase Celebrity Special, making friends with Bradley Walsh and The Vixen. He does tons of charity work, particularly with Comic Relief and there's a rumour that he's going to be involved in The Generation Game when it returns to our TV screens in the not so distant future.

Come and enjoy Basil's anarchic sense of fun, his groan-worthy jokes and his catchphrase:

Boom, boom!
