1987/8: Edward and Friends, a children's TV series based on the LEGO Fabuland theme, airs in Britain and Canada. However, it is created with claymation; not LEGO.
1989: The Magic Portal, an Australian student film, is completed. Its run of international film festivals is blocked by The LEGO Group, but the film does manage to be shown on Australian TV.
