I was a little dissapointed that Veronica Quilligan was not interviewed in the book. I was led to believe she had been (according to my 'sources')  ;)  Gillian Bush Bailey was  ::)

I know you have a soft spot for Veronica, Pete.  :) With her coming into the show at a very late stage I suppose she is not really associated with the series like the regular stars. I'm sure Hazel would have had a big part in the Follyfoot film and if the script ever becomes available we will find that out. Maybe one day Veronica could be asked about her FF memories, that would be interesting? :)

I do agree with what you say dave because Follyfoot, as the original fans would remember, was all about Dora, Steve and Ron. That is where the real fond memories begin and reside. The Colonel and Slugger played their roles too and of course Callie who made appearences much earlier on, made a fleeting impression that warranted a mention in the book. Whereas Hazel appeared as you say, at a later stage. Certainly had the series continued into a fourth run, then her role would have strengthened and a film would I'm sure likely included her  :)

Yes she may be able to add new snippets?

Will there be a More Follyfoot Remembered book or is that just a rumour?

I think it's probably a rumour Rusty.   :)

Hello everybody, i have a question to you all. I like very much to buy the Remembered book from Follyfoot, but i have no creditcard orso, so is it possible to send one of you the money you need, to buy and send the book to me? I also know  that is safe to ask one of you, and pay you before the money. Hope you understand, en can help me, because i can  not buy the book in The Netherlands. Thank you very much

As a newcomer on the site and noticing the existing of the book follyfoot remembered I ordred it immediately. In Belgium you can only do this via the standaard boekhandel. In the book I read that Arthur English was the subject of the television programme this is your life in 1978 with guest appearances from both Gillian and Steve. I looked on different sites (Youtube...) but could not find it anywhere.
In my opinion, Follyfoot was a cult classic because of the fact that it is a lovingly feuilleton that brings up the best in human beings.
Greetings to all the Follyfoot fans

Hi Eric,   >11<  Lovely to have you here with us.  I think the episode of This is your life  that you are thinking of was one for the" Colonel", Desmond Llewelyn, and it was Dora and Ron ( Gillian and Christian), that appeared on it.
I don't know how to do a link, but if you go to the Follyfoot videos section on here, there is a video of it that you can see. Enjoy  >41<
