Forget Me Not Farm (also written as Forget-Me-Not Farm) was a CBBC (later CBeebies) Television series/ show which ran on BBC Two in the United Kindom in the 1990's.
The show seems to be widely forgotten by the general public and information about the series is in very short supply. The series consisted of thirteen episodes each revolving around an aspect of farming. Recently (December 2010) aired on BBC Entertainment.
For much of the programme, a scarecrow and two crow puppets would examine such farming procedures as milking cows, and there would then be an animated tale at the end.
Children’s series set on Forget-Me-Not farm, with the characters Dandelion and Burdock the crows, Trundle the tractor, Portly the pig, and Scarecrow
Set on a farm there were two crows called Dandelion and Burdock, and they used to sit on a scarecrow, one on each shoulder, and tell bad jokes. Mrs Mouse lived inside the scarecrow. There was also a cow and a sheep and a tractor and an Irish milk-float that used to say, "Top of the morning, top of the milk"!
