William's Wish Wellingtons is an animated BBC children's television series made by Hibbert Ralph Entertainment (the creators of Spider) that was first aired from 25 October 1994 to 28 November 1997. It was narrated by Andrew Sachs of Fawlty Towers fame. It was also translated into Gaelic and aired as Botannan Araid Uilleim on BBC Two Scotland during the morning. It was also shown on the American TV show Big Bag


When William's Mum (Sue Bradley) bought him a new pair of boots he discovered a note inside: "These are Wish Wellingtons, put them on and make a wish." William Stevenson could now wish himself anywhere in the world or ask for anything he wanted - which sometimes got him into a spot of bother.

The series comprised 26 (5-minute) episodes - 13 in 1994 and a further 13 in 1996.

Directed by Graham Ralph, and Animation by Mark Mason.

The first series was made available on a BBC video entitled "William and Barksure" (BBCV 5666), and the second series on another BBC video entitled "William Hood" (BBCV 5904),
