Basil Brush
  • The original Basil Brush glove puppet was designed by Peter Firmin in 1963 for an ITV television series.
  • Voiced and performed by Ivan Owen until his death in October 2000.
  • Ivan modelled Basil's voice on that of the film star Terry-Thomas, giving the puppet a touch of well-cultivated class.
