    Binka is a big, furry, well-fed black and white tomcat who roams between three
    households at three separate addresses. Mrs Dawson, the Lockett family and
    Mr Bolt share and adore their pet and make sure he's always full up with food. 
    And three square meals in three different houses makes Binka very full indeed!

    Binka's animal friends include Tango the frolicking puppy and the cute feline Suki.
    Binka likes Suki alot, but his attempts to impress her often lead him astray - like
    the time whewn he gets himself stuck up a tree ("Binka the Brave"). But he's not
    so friendly with Spit, the menacing black cat who prowls the neighbourhood.

    This a bright show, with a "big" star and a clean, glowing colour palette. Binka
    embarks on little adventures around the three houses and gardens. He sniffs out
    new smells, gets lost in the backgarden "jungle", toys with the fish in the
    ornamental pond and generally meanders and plays just like a real cat. Though
    the escapades are small, they're big on sweetness.
The series is a Honeycomb
    Animation production, produced and directed by Simon and Sara Bor. They've
    since brought us the cackling delights of those Grizzly Tales for Gruesome Kids.

    Binka bears a passing resemblance to young James, of course. But although
    he's a pampered pet, he's not as spoilt as that Corner House cat...
