Encyclopedia > Once Upon a Hamster

Once Upon A Hamster was a television show aired during the early 1980s. Characters included Hammy Hamster and G. P., the guinea pig. Voiceovers were used to give the characters personality and the programme was filmed so that the characters, played by actual rodents, appeared to populate a small village near a brook.

Traditional toxicology is based upon the assumption that physiological processes in mammals are much the same and that a substance which is toxic to a small mammal like a rodent is likely to prove equally toxic to a human being, if the quantity of the substance is adjusted according to body weight and other factors.
Human cell and tissue culture in particular were regarded as highly promising methodologies which might prove quite useful, once preliminary research was able to identify certain biological endpoints which could be used to predict toxicity.
