Created by Serge Danot in 1965 the Le Manège Enchanté (The Horse-gear Magic) had over 500 episodes made. It became a cult classic here in the UK when Eric Thompson (Father of the actress Emma Thompson) started writing & narrating the scripts. I know now that students in the 1960s loved the The Magic Roundabout for the underlying drug references (what was Dylan the Rabbit on?!) and the psychedelic backdrop.
But this cup represents pure, innocent childhood nostalgia and it's taken pride of place in my vintage finds collection!
