The first series went into production sometime in 1986. It consisted of 13 episodes, each 5 minutes long, and was aired on the BBC between 1986-1987. The episodes were voiced and narrated by Paul Nicholas and the music was composed by Duncan Lamont. The animation was done at David McKee's King Rollo Films.
The second series went into production in 1993, and consisted of yet another batch of 13 5-minute episodes. Production of the show has shifted back to King Rollo Films after the first phase of It's Fun to Learn With Spot. Paul Nicholas returns as the voices and narration, and Duncan Lamont returns as composer of the music. Many of the characters' looks (most notably Helen's and Tom's) are refined in this season.
