About the Author

Grange was born in Cheshire and moved to London after Art College. During seven years with the Darcy advertising agency Grange wrote and art directed a number of national advertising campaigns for products as diverse as trucks, jams and marmalades, toys, fridges and coffee. Grange was inspired to create Roobarb in 1973 by the antics of his own Welsh Border Collie dog. The stories that Grange wrote featured the ever-optimistic green dog Roobarb and his inventions which more often than not went spectacularly wrong, much to the delight of the sarcastic pink cat Custard. The BBC commissioned an animated series in 1973, which at the time was the first production of its kind in the UK. Created and written by Grange Calveley, animated by Bob Godfrey and voiced by Richard Briers, it was an immediate success, drawing over 7 million viewers in its first three weeks.
