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.

But the dangers being warned about have changed considerably.

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

In one advert he manages to protect his owner, but burns his paw - although he ends up with a fish for his trouble.

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