Sweep By Steiff - Ean 664410 - Limited Edition Sooty Collectable For Sale
Sweep by Steiff - EAN 664410
The first Sooty Show was aired in 1955. Two years later Harry introduced a best friend for Sooty, a little grey dog with floppy ears, his name was Sweep.
Sooty and Sweep hit it off instantly and have been inseparable ever since. A little daft, but very loveable, Sweep is nearly always at the receiving end of Sooty's tricks!
Sweep's mistakes often exhaust the patience of Harry, Matthew or Richard. Harry Corbett would often look to the audience and say despairingly "Ooh .. He’ll have to go that dog ...he'll have to go!" - a tradition continued to this day. Thankfully he has yet to go anywhere!!
Sweep talks with a distinctive squeak and has a surprisingly good singing voice. Back in 1998, He surprised everyone on 'Stars In Your Eyes', appearing as Pavarotti, singing 'Nessun Dorma' - a performance which wows the crowds to this day! Sooty may be the nation's favourite yellow teddy bear, but Sweep remains everyone's favourite little grey dog with the floppy ears.
