"Erasmus Meecro Man"?

I am reassured by the inclusion of this show on IMDb, as it pleases me to know that it does in fact exist and I have not made it up. For years I have been mentioning it in nostalgic pub conversations to be greeted by blank expressions. Virtually my only recollection of this show is that it starred someone who I was convinced was Holly from Red Dwarf (thought the cast list informs me that this is in fact not the case). There was also the theme tune, which went "Erasmus MEECRO Man" over and over again and must have taken about 30 seconds to write (by someone with a bizarre idea of pronunciation).

I also remember thinking it was absolute rubbish, even at the tender age of 10. Though with hindsight it was probably better than Galloping Galaxies.
