Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Details are sketchy regarding the British Saturday-morning children's program Fun Factory. It is known that the series debuted in 1983 as an intended replacement for the legendary ITV kiddie weekender TISWAS. Lacking the earlier series' stellar guest-star lineup, the "new" show at least afforded a rare weekly host opportunity to American dwarf actor Billy Barty. Unfortunately, Fun Factory didn't last as long as its predecessor.
