Catweazle box set review: the medieval magician is hilarious – and he breaks your heart

9 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

When his flying spell backfires, Catweazle arrives in 1969 and encounters colour TVs, people talking into the “telling bone” and a lonely teenager called Carrot

Most of the shows from your childhood are rubbish. The odd YouTube moment aside, you probably won’t be able to revisit one episode of T-Bag or Worzel Gummidge without squirming. Catweazle, a Worzel precursor from 1970, was different, never taking its eye off its characters’ fragility while offering the necessary mayhem to keep both kids and grown-ups hooked. Inspired by a word on a gate that writer Richard Carpenter made note of, Catweazle told the adventures of an inept medieval magician whose flying spell backfires, sending him forward in time to Hexwood Farm circa 1969. Here, he encounters colour TVs, fridges and people talking into the “telling bone”. He also, very carefully, breaks your heart: think of the end of The Snowman, or Gromit leaving home in The Wrong Trousers. »
