Philbert Frog is a British children's animated television series made by Fat City Films and produced by Heather Pedley and Philbert Frog Ltd. Created by Vincent James, it was first shown on the BBC on 24 September 1993 and ended on 17 December 1993.

Philbert Frog is a forgetful, enthusiastic and silly frog who lives in the fictional Noggit Wood. Each episode sees him implicate himself and his pals in adventures of varying lunacy. His friends include Herbert Hedgehog, Melvin Mouse, Willie Worm (who once tried to tunnel to Mars), Monty Mole, Oscar Owl, Bertie Bird, and Tiffany Tortoise (who is quite sensible).

The series ran for 13 5-minute episodes and later aired on TCC and in several countries such as ABC in Australia.
