Bobinogs (original Welsh title: Bobinogi) is a British children's television programme, shown most recently on CBeebies. It debuted for a Welsh audience, but in 2003, it started being broadcast in the English market. It originally featured a child (Owen, played by David Pursey) and three characters who lived in his hat: inanimate when he was present, but active when he was out. This aspect of the series was later dropped; the characters were then active (in cartoon form) from the beginning of the programme.
The three main characters play in a band. A typical episode involves them trying to solve some sort of problem, then performing a song about it at the end. At one point in the episode, they will obtain a clue to the problem's solution by looking through their "bobinoculars", which show video footage from the real world. Since 2003, Bobinogs has been sold to television stations throughout the world.
