Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Created by former British prep-school teacher Anthony Buckeridge in the immediate postwar years, Jennings was an insatiably curious and relentlessly mischievous schoolboy, the bane of every adult who dared to cross his path. Along with his co-conspirator Darbisher, Jennings unwittingly upset classroom decorum, inadvertently made a shambles of every professional institution within his range of vision, and (on the plus side) solved mysteries on behalf of the local constabulary. After debuting as the hero of a BBC radio series in 1948, Jennings enjoyed a lengthy literary career in children's books, and on at least two occasions was brought to British television. One such effort was the six-episode Jennings, starring David Schulten in the title role and Robert Bartlett as Darbyshire. This Jennings was telecast from September 5 to October 10, 1966.
