Basis for Tottie: The Story of a Doll's House, a 1984 animated television series that focuses on the toys in a Victorian dolls' house belonging to sisters Emily and Charlotte Dane. The programme debuted on BBC1 in the UK on the 6th February 1984. The series has a very dark edge, as the dolls wish very hard that good things will happen and that they will not fall on misfortune. The series opens with the phrase, "Dolls are not like people. People choose, but dolls can only be chosen". [wikipedia]. 1245533. Shelved Dupont Bookstore.
