TV: A is for... Agaton Sax By TV Cream Posted on April 10, 2009 Share Tweet Share Share Email Comments ON BBC1 FROM Late 1970s AMIABLE ENOUGH cartoon serial about a bowler-hatted, moustachioed detective (and some sort of police constable sidekick). KENNETH WILLIAMS did the voices. No record of whether, like WILLO THE WISP, show was popular “with the navies”.

Just one of a series of rather good children’s detective spoofs by Swedish author Nils Olof-Franzen. Several of the Sax tales, illustrated by – who else? – Quentin Blake, had previously turned up on Jackanory, with Williams again doing the reading honours.

But it wasin,t in English. I just wonder when it will happen. Reply THX 1139 August 2, 2015 at 5:51 pm When the BBC showed the Kenneth Williams-voiced cartoon, they cut off the opening titles to each episode. Now YouTube reveals why: Agaton Sax appears COMPLETELY NAKED in them. Those funny Swedes! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
