Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Its title taken from a familiar children's song, the British The Up and Down, In and Out, Roundabout Man was a vehicle for mime artist Ben Benison, previously a regular on the long-running series for the hearing-imparied, Vision On. Aimed at preschoolers, Benison's new series, produced by Thames Television, was little more than a grab-bag of unrelated slapstick skits. Although Benison virtually dropped out of sight after his program was cancelled, his successor on Vision On, Sylvester McCoy, went on to fame and fortune as the last actor to play Doctor Who. Originally aired from May 21 to August 13, 1973, The Up and Down, In and Out, Roundabout Man was created by Rex Bloomstein.
