Agaton Sax

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”.

    The only Agaton Sax cartoon that I remember was very loosely based on the novel Agaton Sax And The Criminal Doubles (with Julius Mosca and Octopus Scott, and their innocent look-alikes Absalom Nick and Charlie MacSnuff). 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.

    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!
