1 9 8 2 – 1 9 8 3 (UK)
28 x 30 minute episodes
Derek Griffiths starred as all the characters in this Granada production which was basically an excuse to dust down some old Warner Brother cartoons and take a look at the world surrounding their creation.
Film Fun was set in The Roxy cinema with Griffiths playing the manager; the commissionaire; Doreen the usherette; Reg the projectionist and, of course, himself.
With interruptions from his other characters, Derek would usually look at three Warner Brother cartoons and link them together with a theme which was either character-based or had some historical interest.
The show ran for 21 episodes in 1982 (including a Christmas special) and returned in 1983 for seven more episodes, but under the title Film Fun – The Movie.
This final incarnation shifted the emphasis from Warner Brothers and, instead, looked at the history of cinema.
