This book tells the story of toys based on TV programs (both from the US and Britain), and how these much-loved objects evolved over the years since the 1930s, through the 'golden age' of children's TV in the 1960s and 1970s, and then onto the 1980s until now, including Pinky & Perky, Magic Roundabout, The Man from UNCLE, Batman, Thunderbirds, The A-Team, Doctor Who, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
