Sir Gadabout is an accident waiting to happen. A good egg, slightly cracked, he bravely blunders from calamity to catastrophe via disaster.

Ah! Will! You are familiar with the ornament, are you not? China, Japan...

Don't you mean the "Orient", Sir?
I know what I mean, William. Today, we are going to learn about the art of "Zen", specifically, how one is able to alter their "environment" so that it reflects a mind uncluttered by extraneous thought!
You mean you want to tidy up the room, Sir?

This used to be the highlight of children's TV for me, it outranked even My Parents Are Aliens and everyone in the family knew not to disturb me while I watched Gadabout! Although I liked the episodes with Will, I preferred the ones which focused more on the Knights and the King.
The jokes and parodies were really funny, and would easily appeal to adults who like comedy like Blackadder. I laughed out loud many times to this, and even quoted it around the house- a true mark of a good programme. The characters were perfect, the show was well acted and the jokes were not too adult nor too childish and silly.
When this show ended I was seriously annoyed and wished for more episodes. Luckily, I'm over it now- but if there's ever a repeat of this fabulous series then I'm sure I'll revive my obsession once more!
