    Default Mr Benn

    Festive Road is an ordinary, terraced street. Neighbours chat over fences and children and dogs play on the pavement. Mr Benn lives at number 52 - we know very little about him except he's always smartly dressed in a black suit and bowler hat. Is he a businessman? Or does he simply enjoy dressing formally for fun? In the very first episode ('Mr Benn - Red Knight') the gentle tone of narrator Ray Brooks tells us that he's been invited to a fancy dress party and needs something to wear....

    absolutely agree with you here.
    mr benn is indeed available on dvd.

    There where 14 episodes made in total lasting around fifteen minutues.

    A new story was published in 2001, the first Mr Benn story that David McKee had written in thirty years, and is called Mr Benn - Gladiator (ISBN 1-84270-024-3). McKee has indicated that he may write more Mr Benn stories in the future.

    it was created asnd written by david mckee.

    we where really spiled with shows like this shilts.
    hard to berlieve its 1971 when it started.

    it was class how he changed into so many costumes.,and they loioked really nice on him.

    check the link.

    There was a Mr Benn live action film starring the tefal headed Scottish bloke from Sliding Doors that never got made. They hit their funding target but after the Magic Roundabout film was released the producers apparently decided that making the film would probably lose everyone's money!

    I often wondered what the shopkeeper thought

    This eccentric gentleman comes into his shop at least once a week, goes to the fitting room to try on some clothes & hands the clothes back to the shopkeeper & leaves without buying anything

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    If I remember correctly, it was the shopkeeper who would appear in Mr Benn's adventures to lead him back into the real world at the end of the programme.
