This Thames Television series starred Mel Smith and Bob Goody and was designed to interest children in books and reading. It aired on Tuesday afternoons at 4:45 pm.
The duo had worked together since meeting at drama school, putting together a joint production at the 1977 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
Smith went on to comedic and television fame. Goody, sadly, disappeared without a trace.
