Sooty is a British children's slapstick television series that airs on CITV. It is the fifth such incarnation of the series to feature the titular character Sooty, and the first since the last series ended in 2004, it is also the first since presenter Richard Cadell bought the licensing rights to the brand in 2008.[1]


The series sees Richard starting a new job as a 'Mr Fix-It' at "Slater's Holiday Park" set in a British coastal resort, with Sooty, Sweep and Soo always ready and willing to help him.


The series is filmed at Brean Leisure Park in Somerset, an amusement park that was co-owned by Cadell until 2014.



  • Richard Cadell – he is the presenter of the show and is Sooty's best friend.
  • Sooty – he is 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 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. She wears pink wellies as seen in an episode. Voiced by Brenda Longman.
