Bryer Schmegelsky Obituary, Death – Bryer has insisted from the beginning that she was far more at ease working behind the scenes than in front of the camera when it came to her performance. She began working with the theater company of BBC Radio in 1947 and was a member of hundreds of productions throughout her time there. She was particularly skilled at playing older ladies and younger boys.
It really shouldn’t have come as a surprise to anybody that she was picked to supply the voice of the main character in the puppet series The Adventures of Noddy (1955-1956), which aired from 1955-1956. Noddy, a character created by Enid Blyton, made his debut in this series for the first time. Big Ears, a benevolent gnome, was the one who introduced Noddy to Toyland.
In addition to the tinkling of the bell that was fastened to Noddy’s hat, his arrival was announced by the “parp-parp” sound that emanated from the horn of the little vehicle that Noddy drove. In 1956, Pentagon Films hired Bryer to do his voice for a commercial for Kellogg’s Sugar Ricicles that included Noddy. The commercial was for Kellogg’s Sugar Ricicles.
At the time, Anderson and Arthur Provis, who was working as the director of photography, were among the proprietors of Pentagon Films. The Adventures of Twizzle was AP Films’ first production after its founders, two people, established the firm in 1957. The marionette series aired for a total of 52 episodes between the years 1957 and 1958 under the direction of producer Roberta Leigh.
It was decided that Bryer would play the part of the main character’s kitty friend, and Nancy Nevinson would lend her voice to the role of the main character. She tells Twizzle, “I’ve got such big paws that I’m always falling over them – that’s why I’m called Footso,” and together they build Stray Town as a safe haven for other toys. Footso’s name comes from the fact that she is continually tripping over her paws. Footso got her name from the fact that she trips over her own paws all the time, hence the name.
