Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Richard Beckinsdale starred in this British children's series, which was devoted to quickie comedy sketches based upon "nonsense" poems. Beckinsdale and his talented supporting cast acted out the zaniness set down in print by such master humorists as Edward Lear and Spike Milligan. It wasn't supposed to make any sense, and in this respect the program succeeded beyond anyone's wildest imagination. Doled by Thames Television in six half-hour installments from April 2 to May 2, 1971, the series is best remembered for its theme song, which went something like, "Ha Ha Ha/Hee Hee Hee/Elephant's Eggs in a Rhubarb Tree."
