Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Adapted from the novels by Joan Eadington, Jonny Briggs was introduced to British television as a recurring segment on the long-running "readers' theater" children's series Jackanory. The stories concerned a troublemaking boy (the title character), his long-suffering parents, and his pet dog Razzle. The series version of Jonny Briggs was distinguished by its surprisingly realistic (albeit comical) classroom scenes, in which Jonny was tormented by a pair of "cute" twins. The 13 20-minute episodes of Jonny Briggs was beamed out to the U.K. in 1985.
