Big Ears

Here's a bit of wisdom from an unlikely source:

"A painting that goes wrong is better than one you never even tried to paint."

Thus spake Big Ears to his little friend Noddy (yes the little chap with the bell on the end of his hat - the one who lives in Toyland). I'm hoping that these words were written by Enid Blyton herself, but perhaps they were written by whoever writes the script for the Noddy cartoon. Whoever wrote it, it makes much sense to me, and I'm glad little kids got to hear it too.

I think I agree with Big Ears, although I am pretty sure I don't know the cartoon you are referring to...

Alas! You have not known the joy of Enid Blyton's Noddy? They were a wonderful collection of children's stories (probably considered a bit politically incorrect nowadays) and now there's a TV cartoon based on her stories.
