A cute, vegetarian guinea pig pitches pet care to kids and explains his origins – descended from South American rodents called the “restless Cavies”, no less. This delightful cartoon was created by the popular South Shields-born artist Sheila Graber as a pilot for a children’s television series that was broadcast around the world in the 1980s.
