Noddy's New Friend, in American releases, is the seventh episode in season 1 of Noddy's Toyland Adventures that was first transmitted on Children's BBC at 29th October 1992.


Noddy makes a new friend, Bunkey, who hurt his foot after "escaping" from a circus caravan. Bunkey is allowed to stay with Noddy until his foot is better, and promises to help him. Bunkey proves to be too helpful, and ends up stealing things to cater to Noddy and his friends.



  • When Bunkey was rushing out the door, he still has his spoon in his hand, but in the next scene when he is shown pulling up the weeds in Noddy’s garden, his spoon is gone, as Bumpy Dog came running along.
