This BBC TV children’s series was Blue Peter but with logic puzzles and quizzes, designed to teach kids maths and to try and tease their brain a little with a mix of comedy and questions.
The show starred Janet Ellis and mime artist Adrian Hedley with Clive Dunn as The Mad Inventor and Sylvester McCoy and David Rappaport as the O-men.
Also featured was “Noseybonk” – a weird and sinister character with a huge nose and evil grin that looked almost like something from A Clockwork Orange. Sleep well, kiddies!
