Tales from the Riverbank was one of the five selections of children's television programmes called Take Five which was seen after Sesame Street on Channel 4 at 1.30 pm on weekday afternoons in around 1992. I think that they varied, but in addition to TFTRB they included a lot of former BBC series such as the Mr Men, The Herbs, Ivor the Engine, Something called Joggy Bear (not to be confused with Huggy Bear out of Starsky and Hutch) and was an exercise type bit for youngsters with Mad Lizzie in tow (seen during her final months at TV-am), and a girl cartoon character called Natalie which I don't remember appearing anywhere else. Each segment was around five minutes long.
