ActivityGrange Calveley is a British writer and artist who is best known as the creator of the BBC's animated television series Roobarb and Noah and Nelly in SkylArk. He also wrote and provided the character drawings for the revival series Roobarb and Custard Too.
The Roobarb cartoon is loosely based on Grange's own dog, a Welsh Border Collie. Custard was drawn after the huge cat who lived next door. The BBC, who sold the Roobarb programs to more than 40 countries, also commissioned the original television series.
