The classic British children’s fantasy television series, starring Geoffrey Bayldon.
It’s an incredible four decades since Catweazle arrested the boredom of Sunday afternoons to become a television legend, and on this special edition DVD set of both series he returns to enchant a new generation with his unique brand of magical comedy.
Filled with humour, warmth and charm, Catweazle captured the imagination of children everywhere with Richard Carpenter’s wondrous story of a bumbling magician and his pet toad, trapped nine hundred years ahead of their own time. Unforgettable for Geoffrey Bayldon’s entrancing performance as Catweazle the wizard, the series also boasted a superb regular cast, while guest appearances by some of Britain’s finest actors of the period – including Hattie Jacques and Peter Sallis – ensured the quality status of the production.
