Hairy Maclary is a 10-part series adapted from the beloved children's books by Lynley Dodd. The Euan Frizzell-animated series follows the titular dog on his Kiwi neighbourhood forays. Opening with the theme tune familiar to families worldwide, this is Hairy's first adventure, introducing his mates — Schnitzel von Krumm, Bottomley Potts and Muffin McClay — and his tomcat tormenter ... Scarface Claw! Actor Miranda Harcourt narrates, capturing the rhythms of Dodd's prose that have seen the stories sell millions of copies since being first published in 1983.
