Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Just William was one of two identically titled British TV series adapted from Richmal Crompton's best-selling books about naughty schoolboy William Brown. The terror of everyone over the age of consent, William and his youthful gang, the appropriately yclept "the Outlaws," seemed incapable of getting through an entire day without wreaking havoc. At that, William was easier to take than his classroom nemesis Violet Elizabeth (Bonnie Langford), a tantrum-throwing brat who sounded like Elmer Fudd. Telecast on Sunday afternoons, the 1978 version of Just William ran from February 6, 1977 to January 22, 1978, chalking up 26 half-hour episodes and one 60-minute special.
