14 May 2012 Last updated at 16:41 BST

Legendary artist and presenter Rolf Harris has told BBC Radio 5 live that working on Animal Hospital was one of his finest moments.

He said that after being axed from Rolf's Cartoon Club after over 100 shows, he fell into a depression and almost lost out on the animal programme.

Mr Harris, whose latest exhibition, Can You Tell What It Is Yet? is on at Liverpool's Walker Art Gallery from 19 May, spoke to Richard Bacon about working on the show and reminded us why he has such a fond place in our hearts.
