Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The "Giants" in this British children's sitcom were the members of the Glipton Grasshoppers, a junior-league co-ed football team comprised of misfits and losers. Coming to the rescue was new coach Jossy Blair (Jim Barclay), former star player with the Newcastle United. The series banked heavily on the kiddie viewers' inbred love of British football and their innate sympathy for the underdog. Telecast in ten half-hour segments, Jossy's Giants debuted April 23, 1986.
