Sooty Heights is a British children's television series that was produced for two series that aired on ITV from 27 September 1999 to 11 December 2000. It replaced Sooty & Co, that was presented by Matthew Corbett, who had retired as Sooty's right-hand man and sold the rights. The show featured the famous TV puppet, along with friends Sweep, Soo, and Little Cousin Scampi, as they attempted to run a hotel. It was presented by Richard Cadell and Liana Bridges.
In 2001, Sooty Heights was renamed as Sooty. The show was still set in the same hotel, but refurbished. The hotel (but not the show) was then renamed again as "Hotel Sooty".
Sooty - a mute yellow bear who is the protagonist of the show. He owns a magic wand whose power is invoked using the words "Izzy wizzy, let's get busy".
Sweep - a dim-witted grey dog with a penchant for bones and sausages. He wears red wellingtons and communicates using bizarre squeaks.
Soo - a calm and collected female panda who acts as the foil for both Sooty and Sweep. Usually wears a red skirt. Voiced by Brenda Longman.
Little Cousin Scampi - he is very cheeky and is also a serial troublemaker. He wears a navy blue school uniform and, like Sooty, is mute.
Dotty (played by Brenda Longman) - an eccentric woman who owns a hotel of her own in the area, but there's no rivalry between her and Sooty Heights as she often pops round to help them with any hotel related problems.
