The title of this British children's show had little to do with the mental stability of the lead character. It seems there was this youngster named Harry Holdsworth (Gareth Holdsworth), who, after the death of his uncle, found himself the proud possessor of a talking parrot named Madison. The fun began when the irrepressible Mad shot off his mouth at the most inopportune moments, plunging poor Harry in a heap of trouble. Based on the novel by Dick King-Smith, Harry's Mad was broadcast by Central Television from 1993 to 1996, toting up 36 episodes.
