Synopsis by Hal Erickson
As must be obvious from its title, this British children's series was a comic and distaff variation on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of schizophrenia, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Thanks to an ancient family curse, heroine Julia Jekyll (Olivia Hallinen) periodically transformed into a hirsute male giant named Harriot Hyde. The problem: Julia had no control over when and where these transformations would take place. Fortunately, the monstrous Harriot performed more good deeds than bad, so no one (except the occasional deserving villain) was ever really harmed. Created by Jeremy Swan, Julia Jekyll and Harriot Hyde made its British TV bow in 1995.
