Friendly fox visits Sydney Children's Hospital

Popular UK children's television character, Basil Brush (R), is gearing up to deliver a good dose of laughter medicine to Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick during his current Australian tour.

Taking place on Tuesday 23 March, the debonair fox Basil Brush (R), is set to charm a whole new generation.

With his trademark BOOM! BOOM! catchphrase and store of wonderfully terrible jokes, Basil will pay a visit to the Cancer, Heart/Lung/Renal and Orthopaedic Wards where he will meet and greet patients at bed side and hand out autograph cards.

During his visit, Basil will also pop into the Starlight Express Room on Level 3 where he will be interviewed by Captain Starlight for broadcast on the Starlight TV Channel.

In Australia to launch his wicked new Video/DVD UNLEASHED, as well as a line of plush toys and merchandise, Basil will also be promoting THE BASIL BRUSH SHOW currently airing at 4.35 pm Tuesdays to Fridays on ABC Television, with all new episodes premiering from Friday 19 March.
