Bonehead (BBC 1960-1962, Colin Douglas, Paul Whitsun-Jones)



BBC Logo

Early children’s comedy series Bonehead detailed the misadventures of three absolutely useless crooks. Interestingly the episodes featured different titles each episode that were drawn by Tony Hart.

On 12 March 1957 there was a half hour edition that featured the same lead trio, once again written by Shaun Sutton. Patrick Cargill was main guest star.
