VIDEO: Charley Says...

Seventies superstar, Charley the safety cat is making a comeback.

The animated feline featured in a string of public information adverts, lasting into the eighties.

He warned a generation of children about the dangers of everything from matches to drowning.

Now he is being brought back for a new generation - with help from David Walliams.

Charley is now concerned about things such as overloaded plug sockets.

You can watch some of the original adverts - and the new version here...
