I am very surprised to learn that only 14 episodes of Mr Benn were ever made. About time we had more episodes.

I do agree, what was your favourite?


I liked 'The Frogman' and 'Zoo Keeper'.
Are you lapsing into your second childhood, Barry, or is it just that you've never really left the first one?

;-)
I quite agree we need more Mr Benn.
It would have been good to see the planned (then cancelled) film, would John Hannah have captured the man of mystery?
John Cleese limited Fawlty Towers as he felt that the only way was downwards after the first series. Apparently, a Beeb Exec saw his idea for a Thrust House Thrifty training video on hotel management on which he had developed Fawlty Towers and suggested that there was a much wider audience for the comedy.

I've deliberately removed the link - you will have to copy and paste - as otherwise AB will turn it into a link to episode 1.
It was all a bit suspect. A man who likes dressing up goes to someone who helps him satisfy his needs.
I preferred Bagpuss myself, and that only has 13 episodes made.
I liked Gentle Ben the grizzly bear :0)
I loved Mr Benn. So different from the fast paced, garish programmes of today
i don't know who this is?
It seems that most of the early animation series only had between 12-14 episodes and they were rotated on a regular basis.
Emmie, youre really missing out here. Mr Benn is/was a childrens programme from way back when. He would go to a fancy dress hire shop, choose a costume, go into a cubicle and put it on and then go through a curtain to an adventure. I'm sure someone cleverer than me can give a link.
its alright i have looked it up, never heard of it to be honest
I also loved The Herbs....... "I'm a very friendly lion called Parsley".... from the 60s.

My dad and I had a passion for Trumpton and Camberwick Green and from there I developed a love of many children's tv series - Bagpuss, The Herbs, Clangers, Pipkin, Button Moon and of course The Magic Roundabout. Such simple, delightful escapism
Oh yes, loved all of those and The Flumps
magic roundabout and the clangers, i remember those. but my childhood goes back to the fifities.
used to love Fraggle Rock. my mate and i rolled up with laughter at the antics.

I didn't say I was a child when I watched them :) Muffin the Mule, Woodentops, Tales of the Riverbank, Andy Pandy, Bill and Ben, watched them all
