In the original books and the 1970's version of Noddy as Mr. Polly, he wears a black cap, a mustache on his face, a blue and white coat, a red tie, and black trousers, and in Noddy's Toyland Adventures, he wears a black bowler hat, blue and white checkered coat and purple waistcoat, a white bow tie with red spots and green trousers, renamed as Mr. Sparks. In the 1975 version, he is called Monsieur Polly. His catchphrase is "A challenge? I like it!" the late Jimmy Hibbert voiced Mr. Sparks in Noddy's Toyland Adventures and Richard Briers voiced Mr. Polly in the 1975 version.
