Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Based on the children's novel by Alan Temperly, the British miniseries Harry and the Wrinklies got underway when young Harry (Nicholas Robinson) moved in with his elderly aunts, Bridget (Mona Bruce), and Florrie (Elsie Kelly), and Dot (Toni Palmer). Imagine his surprise when he discovers that his sweet old aunties were actually the brains of a clever gang of thieves. But since it was all for a good cause (the ladies stole from the undeserving rich to give to the deserving poor), Harry elected to join the gang himself. Featuring such flawless farceurs as Victor Spinetti and George Sewell, Harry and the Wrinklies was broadcast in four 25-minute installments by ITV from May 11 to June 1, 2000.
