Hootlius Smirklus! What a great show and a great premise!
12 January 2007 | by ian-1211See all my reviews

This has got to be one of my greatest show in my living memory. I remember the T.V show which rocked because it had great music and brilliant characters. Here is the synopsis. While fishing in a port in England, Charlie Chalk, a friendly clown who falls asleep on a hot and lazy summer day out at sea and sails adrift to the mysterious island of Merrywit where he encounters strange creatures and new adventures. They also had Charlie Chalk at the Brewers' Fayre restaurant in the U.K. They were on everything! The slides, drinks, menus and even the dustbins! It was so wonderful! I just take it in! I went back to that restaurant to celebrate my birthday recently. It was great fun but there's was no Charlie! He was gone! It just not same without him. Please CBBC, bring back the show and so restaurants that he's still popular! I miss him! 10/10
