Bro & Bro- the stars of 'Wolf It'

Wolf It was a TV series produced by Scottish Television and broadcast on CITV for 4 series between 1993 and 1996. The show was spin off from the Saturday morning TV series What's Up Doc? and features Bro and Bro, two puppet wolves who featured regularly in the aforementioned show. The programme was filmed in and around the Maidstone television studios, where it was also set, with Bro & Bro having set up home in a film vault.

The show replaced Rolf's Cartoon Club, and like the previous show, also showed cartoons, all from the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies series, which ITV owned the rights to at the time, 2 shorts were shown each episode.

Bro and Bro were played by Don Austen and John Eccleston. Despite Eccleston's shoes being filled on the original What's Up Doc? (series 3 onwards) by Dave Chapman, best known perhaps for playing Otis the Aardvark as well as multiple characters on Dick and Dom in Da Bungalow. Eccleston continued to perform his character for subsequent series of Wolf It!

Series 3 and 4 were known as Wolf It: The Next Generation.

In 1994, a video was released containing 4 episodes from the first series, albeit without the cartoon shorts. However, apart from this, there have been no further releases, and the episodes have not been repeated.
