Rosie and Jim (sometimes written as Rosie & Jim) was a British children's television programme produced by Ragdoll Productions and aired on CITV from 3 September 1990 to 11 December 2000.

Story[edit]

Rosie and Jim are two rag dolls who live on board a narrowboat called the Ragdoll, which is from Birmingham. There they sit with a concertina on their lap, and come alive when no one is looking to explore the world that they pass by on the canal. They learn to experience things by following the Ragdoll's owner on his or her adventures and secretly joining in with them, but usually they end up causing trouble. However they never end up getting into trouble, as no one ever seems to see them!

Characters[edit]

Rosie[edit]

Rosie is the female ragdoll. In their adventures she carries a bag that has her name written on it. She wears a yellow dress and has long black hair held up in a pony tale. She is often heard referring to the boat driver as "fizzgog".

Jim[edit]

Jim is the male ragdoll. In their adventures he can be seen carrying a note book in which he sometimes draws things that he has seen. He has short red hair and wears a brown jacket with a red scarf. He also refers to the boat driver as "fizzgog".

Duck[edit]

Duck sits on top of the ragdoll boat and can be heard quacking when there are no humans around so that both Rosie and Jim know that the coast is clear. During many episodes Rosie or Jim can be seen kissing the duck.

Narrowboat[edit]

Rosie and Jim's home was the Ragdoll, a beautiful canal boat. Following the boat's redundancy from Ragdoll Productions, it is no longer on display to the public.
