The Herbs Episode Guide Three
Parsley and the Circus Lion Parsley is behaving strangely. Dill gets a fright. Sir Basil upsets the newcomer to the garden but is saved from Lady Rosemary who realises that the new Parsley is not really Parsley at all but an escaped circus lion. Constable Knapweed is chasing the wrong lion in the garden. Which one is the escaped lion ?
My name is Aunty Mint,
if you should see me sitting,
don't think I'm doing nothing,
for I'm busy with my knitting.
I'm a very neat herb and my name is Miss Jessop
I like everything tidy and all just in place
but all of the other herbs make such a mess up
the state of the garden is a dreadful disgrace.

A second series of adventures was also written by Michael Bond. These were titled "THE ADVENTURES OF PARSLEY." This series continued where the Herbs left off and contained many of the original characters but mainly concentrated on Parsley the Lion and Dill the Dog. A total of Three Herbs Videos and Two The Adventures of Parsley Videos have been released on VHS. Even now they can still be picked up from certain shops. The Herbs was narrated by Gordon Rollings who later went on to do several adverts for "John Smiths" as Arkwright (thanks to Greenman).
