Joshua Jones is a Welsh stop-motion children's television series made by Bumper Films. It was originally shown on S4C in the Welsh language in 1991, then it was translated into English and sold to the BBC in 1992. The series was about a cheerful fellow named Joshua Jones who lives on a canal boat with his canine companion Fairport and together they take trips up and down Clearwater Canal, delivering items and carrying out tasks for the folks at Biggott's Wharf and generally having a fun time on the water. Joshua's bosses are: Baboo Karia, a retired Indian Admirable, Datsa Karia, Mr Cashmore's co-worker and Baboo's daughter-in-law, and the get-rich-quick Wilton Cashmore. Joshua's friends are: Joe Laski, the Hungarian farmer who takes a care of his horse Trojan, Ravi Karia, the Indian Boy who is Mrs. Karia's son and Admirable's grandson, and Fiona, Mr. Cashmore's not-so-money-hungry daughter. His co-workers are: Sharon, a dizzy blonde girl who owned a catering van, and Spanner, the lazy boy who likes Sharon. The most interesting person is Daphne Peacock, the vet who takes care of the sick animals.
