Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The British sitcom The Walrus and the Carpenter originated on December 14, 1963, as a one-off episode of the BBC's Comedy Playhouse. Having nothing to do with Lewis Carroll despite its title, the series detailed the misadventures of a pair of mismatched old friends, played by eminent British character actors Hugh Griffith and Felix Aylmer. The scripts were written by Barry Took (one of the guiding forces in bringing Monty Python's Flying Circus to the small screen) and future comedy star Marty Feldman. The six half-hour episodes of The Walrus and the Carpenter were originally broadcast from March 2 to April 6, 1965.
