Introducing C.S.Lewis Doodles on Youtube

Dear all,
(Apologies for neglecting the forum for so long. I’m now trying to catch up again.)

I did a quick search for “doodle” in this forum and didn’t find what I’m about to plug. I beg your pardon if I missed it.

There’s a very enjoyable YouTube channel called C.S.Lewis Doodle. The format is simple and effective: a British male voice reads a chapter or an essay of Lewis’s, and a “doodler” illustrates it in real time. They’ve already done a number of them, and I find the doodles great for keeping you focused on the text. Great for introducing new people, especially young people, to our favourite don.

Free Thulcandra!

C.S. Lewis Doodles is an outstanding channel. I highly recommend it and promote it at least once a year on my blog.


It’s good to hear from you, Hyoi. You must have just returned from Malacandra. And the thousands of views of these doodles may be an indication that progress is being made on the road to “freeing Thulcandra” (:-).


“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever.” (1 Corinthians 13: 4-8)

Thanks for the pointer to this channel–I hadn’t heard of it before. Just watched this one:

Reminds me of a number of discussions Ray and I used to have.

A post was split to a new topic: Contact for Doug Gresham?

Yes, there’s nothing like 'Home Leave" to pick you up, especially if you’re a Martian.
Stress at work but relief in sight. I hope to be reading regularly again soon.

The new forum seems more user-friendly than the old Yahoo group anyway. Thanks to Dan and all who have helped!

PSsssst. I may be an alien myself, but at least from this solar system. I think Dan is a Vorlon !
There goes the neighbourhood!

Understanding is a three-edged sword. And I have always been here.

The C.S.Lewis doodler has apparently found a forgotten text by C.S.Lewis in a magazine from 1946.
A Christmas sermon for pagans
About Christmas, (true) paganism, and “post-Christianism”.

The voice is annoyingly robotic, and it’s basically over at 13m45s, but worth a listen:

For “dessert” you could listen to “The Grand Miracle” :slight_smile:

Part 1.
Part 2.

Not a doodle, but here are The Screwtape letters in their entirity, read by the John Cleese (good choice, don’t you think?)

Wishing everyone a blessed and healthy Thulcandral 2020 AD.
