Ragdoll Productions (or Ragdoll Ltd) is an English company that produces children’s television shows. It was founded in 1984 by Anne Wood, who later devised many of their television series, seen (in the case of Teletubbies) in 111 countries and translated into 41 languages.
Before 1984, Ragdoll’s founder Anne Wood made children’s programmes for Yorkshire Television (which was the name before the rebrand to ITV Yorkshire) and TV-am. Ragdoll Ltd is a privately owned family company founded in 1984 by Anne Wood. In 2006 Ragdoll and BBC Worldwide formed a joint venture, Ragdoll Worldwide and has since dropped the original “Productions Ltd” label in order to manage and exploit Ragdoll programming. The slogan for the company is “Works for children.”
