Children’s television favourite Sooty is to move to a new home after the rights to a large library of programmes featuring the puppet were sold.

The glove-puppet bear and his friends Sweep the dog and panda Soo are being bought by One Media IP, a Buckinghamshire-based acquirer of music and video rights.

The rights are being sold by Richard Cadell, the children’s entertainer who has appeared alongside Sooty since 1999.

The company will have exclusive control of a variety 
of classic Sooty content including eight TV shows presented by Sooty’s creator, Harry Corbett.
