The series was made by many of the personalities involved in Grizzly Tales, including music and words by Grizzly composer Ed Welch, Honeycomb Animation producers Simon & Sara Bor and Michael Forte's team at Carlton Television.
It features the voice and frequent ad-libs of comedy legend, Spike Milligan.
The series originally ran on ITV 1 from 1995 -9 and won the RTS Award for Children's Entertainment for 1995.
I had a lovely little note from Faye yesterday, who is sad because she can't watch Grizzly Tales since it moved from CiTV to NickToons.
If you don't receive NickToons, you can find episodes on YOUTUBE, but beware, they are not there legally. Small children in bedrooms throughout the land are stealing my stories and letting other small children watch them for nothing.
Mr You Tube kindly removed the earliest examples of Grizzly theft, but as soon as one channel was shut down, six others appeared.
The only consolation I have, is that each copyright thieving little person, will eventually have to check in at the Hot-Hell Darkness .............. Forever. I have a room waiting for you all.
7:30pm - Sunday, December 25 on ABC3 A Grizzly New Year's Tale - The Crystal Eye
During this Christmas special, Uncle Grizzly shows us a 'tale of terror' called The Crystal Eye, where a naughty boy is punished for being a very greedy brother.
Christmas is a time of peace and goodwill, a time for sharing and for families to unite. But not for Fick and Finn. They are identical twins, but could not be more un-alike! While Finn is the model of good behaviour, his identical brother Fick is greedy, unkind and just plain horrible to his brother and parents. He hates being a twin. He hates sharing anything with his brother and this causes untold problems at Christmas.
Fick goes to extreme lengths to make sure that he receives every present on offer while Finn gets none.

Following a life time of award abuse at the hands of Uncle Grizzly, Spindleshanks is fearful of Grizzly Tales's nomination for a BAFTA at this month's award ceremony for Animation series at the Children's BAFTAs.
"Previous awards have been heavy enough, but a BAFTA is such a weighty object, I won't be able to rest until I know the result on the 27th" said Spindleshanks. The octipede has had several narrow escapes before, this is the third nomination for Animation series at the BAFTA awards, Jamie Rix receiving a further three nominations for Writer of the series.
The award winning Dr Moribundus is on at 10pm tonight, on NickToons for UK and Ireland
Featured on the cover of the third Grizzly book, Fearsome Tales for Fiendish Kids, the episode from the very first series, won best Network Programme from Royal Television Society, Devon and Cornwall Centre in 2000
ABC have announced the third episode in it,s run of Grizzly Tales
