Welcome to TheSootyShow.Org!

starWelcome to TheSootyShow.org, the most comprehensive Sooty fan site online! We are currently working on putting a complete episode guide together of all the Sooty television episodes from all eras of the show. However, as you can imagine it is a huge task, so the site will be a work in progress for a while. It will be difficult to fully complete pages for all episodes on this guide, as we do not have a copy of all the episodes broadcast in our archive. starIf you think you can help with any episodes we do not have, please feel free to send us an email by clicking here! You can view which episodes we have/need on the forum (click on Forum link above)

Do you have VHS or Betamax tapes with Sooty Show episodes recorded from TV in the 1980's?

We are currently looking for episodes of The Sooty Show broadcast during the 1980's, in order to help complete our episode guide. The episodes we are mainly looking for, are the ones broadcast in the UK between 1981 and 1987 (they were shown in Australia and New Zealand in the late 1980's). Don't worry if you have a tape that you can no longer play! We can convert your tapes to DVD for you and then return your tapes to you with a DVD copy of all the episodes from the tape. We are happy to do this completely free and we'd be happy to cover all postage costs. Both VHS and Betamax are not a problem for us to convert for you! We might be able to convert other formats too! We are also happy to work with folks outside the UK as well, so if you are from Australia or New Zealand, please be sure to get in touch with what you have! For a detailed list of what we need you can view our 'want' list here on our forum: Sooty Episode Want List

We Look forward to hearing from you!
