Big Ears


Jimmy Hibbert

Big Ears is the tritagonist from the Noddy series books by Enid Blyton. He describes his ears as too big, and his cap which was "either too pointy or not pointy enough." He is a friendly gnome who is Noddy's helper and father-figure. He lives in a giant toadstool just outside the Dark Woods. He has a long, white beard, long red pointy cap, blue jacket, red-and-white striped jumper and yellow-and-green trousers. He first meets Noddy when he's riding his bicycle to visit Toyland. Noddy accidentally knocks Big Ears off his bike and tells him he's ran away from his toy-maker. Big Ears takes him under his wing, gives him a name and helps him move to Toyland. In the 1970's version, Big Ears is voiced by Richard Briers. In Noddy's Toyland Adventures, he is voiced by Jimmy Hibbert. Big Ears has a great knowledge of magic and history and is the wisest resident of Toyland. Noddy always comes to Big Ears for advice. His catchphrase is "You funny little Noddy!" In the 90's version he appears in all episodes except Noddy and the Naughty Tail, Noddy Meets Some Silly Hens and Noddy Lends a Hand. He is currently voiced by Jonathan Kydd, Who previously voiced Paddington Bear.
