Step Inside is still shown occasionally on the CBeebies channel or BBC Two.
The only human character in the show is Mr Mopple (played by Chris Jarvis), a groundsman. Whilst doing his jobs, Mr Mopple invariably hears a noise from the house which tells him there must be a story to be told. The house magically appears to come to life as he steps inside, a face appearing on the outside wall.
Inside the house are the non-human characters, which use a mix of animatronic faces and puppet hands:
- Twinkle, a cat
- Boris, a bookshelf
- Chloe, a clock
Boris the bookshelf provides the book for the story, and Mr Mopple sits down to tell a story. The characters often argue among themselves, with Mr Mopple keeping the peace. Mr Mopple reads the story, providing an array of voices for each character in the book. When Mr Mopple has finished the story, he goes back to work.
