Back in the days (1989 - 1994) when Nobby really was a non-laughed at name for a sheep were
Ghost Train and Gimmie 5.
Hours and hours were spent watching these fantastic series which ran ALL MORNING on ITV on Saturdays for children. Not everything on them was to my taste... so I'd move over to see what BBC were offering (but that's for another post)
Frances Dodge, Paul J. Medford and Sabra Williams (not that they include it on their BIO's), The storyline being that Frances has inherited a Ghost Train, with the help of her friends she sneaks the train from the grasp of the evil Barry Mafia (Joe Hall) and makes her escape. Inside is a startled Gerard (Angelo Abela), the aliens' favourite broadcaster, and a camp sounding talking sheep, named Nobby (a puppet operated and voiced by Simon Buckley). However Barry Mafia is after them, aided by the Mafiaettes.

Ghost Train on Sunday was later produced in 1990 by Border Television and presented by Shauna Lowry.
Jenny Powell, Lewis MacLeod, Matthew Davies (series 1), it was presented by and Nobby the Sheep. For series 2, Paul Leyshon replaced Lewis MacLeod.
Cartoons shown included The Real Ghostbusters and Scooby Doo.... do you remember any others?
A very young Ant and Dec also made an appearance.......
