Catweazle's Magical Mayhem!
Filmed with humor, warmth and charm, Catweazle captured the imagination of children everywhere, with the story of a hapless magician and his pet toad Touchwood, trapped nine hundred years ahead of their time. Filmed to the brim with hilarious pandemonium and magical mayhem the loveable sorcerer enters a labyrinth of chaos on his quest to return to his own time.

Unforgettable for Geoffrey Bayldon's outstanding performance as Catweazle, the series also boasted a superb regular cast of Charles Tingwell (Mr Bennet), Neil McCarthy (Sam) and Robin Davies (Carrot), whilst guest appearances by some of Britain's top actors of the time ensured the series of it's quality status.

An instant childrens TV classic Catweazle was applauded by critics and fans alike when it was first shown, earning it's writer Richard Carpenter, a Writers Guild award in 1971.
