The Story of Tracy Beaker is a television programme adapted from the book of the same name by Jacqueline Wilson. It ran on CBBC for five series, from 2002 to 2006. The series stars Dani Harmer as the title character.
The episodes themselves intersperse live action with cartoon sequences drawn by Nick Sharratt depicting Tracy's inner thoughts and, from series 3 onwards, the thoughts of other characters. Initially these cartoons would often be followed by a more realistic interpretation of what happened, but this was discontinued after the first series. The theme song was written and performed by Keisha White.
Tracy Beaker ReturnsEdit
A new series announced by the BBC in March 2009 consisted of 13 episodes and aired in 2010. The series followed Tracy Beaker (still played by Dani Harmer) as she returns to The Dumping Ground as a care assistant. Only three cast members from the first series reappear.
