This comedy series from ATV starred Gary Warren (who had played Cedric in Catweazle) as know-it-all 16-year-old Alexander Green. Sydney Tafler played his Yiddisher papa, Joe – a furrier.

Adrienne Posta and Libby Morris (who was later replaced by Stella Moray) made up the rest of the comfortable middle-class Jewish family.

Alexander desperately wants to spread his wings and take over the world.

The first series aired on Thursday evenings but moved to Wednesdays for the second series.
