Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This British sitcom was one of several TV vehicles for mustachioed comedian Jimmy Edwards. On this occasion, the star was billed as Professor James Edwards, the headmaster of Chiselbury School. A stickler for discipline and protocol, Edwards was invariably undermined by his own stupidity. Originally telecast from 1956 to 1960, toting up 60 episodes in the process, Whack-O! was revived for an additional 13 installments in 1971. The series also spawned a theatrical feature, Bottoms Up (1960).
