Noddy, also named as The Noddy Shop, is an American-Canadian television series based on Enid Blyton's children's book series of the same name with stop-motion sequences from Noddy's Toyland Adventures that aired from September 28, 1998 to February 16, 2000 on PBS. Following its cancellation, reruns were aired until September 13, 2002. The series is produced by WNET and WNYE-TV.

The show starred Sean McCann as Noah Tomten, a former old salt, who now runs an antique shop, the NODDY Shop (this stood for, "Notions, Oddities, Doodads and Delights of Yesterday"). His catchphrases included "What in tarnation?!" and "Great Neptune's Ghost!", usually whenever he was excited about something. It also starred Jayne Eastwood as his scatter-brained sister, Agatha Flugelschmidt, who runs a hat shop next door to the Noddy shop. One of her catchphrases included "Oh, pish-posh!", usually whenever she disagreed with something that someone else said.

The stories in The Noddy Shop mainly centred on three children- Noah's grandchildren, Kate and Truman, and a friend of Kate's named Daniel Johnson, shortened to D.J., who came to play at the shop, and were collected by their (unseen) parents at the end of the day, implying the episodes were set after school, during school holidays or at weekends. Most episodes had a moral message, which was conveyed with a Noddy story, usually told by Kate using the Noddy dolls in the shop, which the viewer saw as recycled animation from earlier Noddy cartoons. The moral message was also a theme in a song sung by the shop's population of anthropomorphic toys. There was sometimes a second song, usually a re-enactment of a popular folk tale.
