"As if by magic... the shopkeeper appeared."
This show was about Mr Benn, a simple man who lived at 52 Festive Road. Every week Mr Benn went into his local costume shop and was transformed into a different character and had lots of adventures. 13 episodes were made in 1971. A DVD was released in 2005, showing the previous 13 episodes, plus one newly written episode, "Mr Benn - Gladiator", produced by King Rollo Films.
