TV: W is for...


“TIME CAME to grow a bit, grow a bit, grow a bit.” Oh, for the love of. Awful, awful kid’s chromakey whimsicality, masterminded by, of all people, PAUL “COUNTERWEIGHTED DOOR” DANIELS. Title thing was a three-foot cone that “did” magic, aided a giant mute rabbit. Collectively they battled some evil bastard or other, who lived inside a giant floating fist, guarded by VICKY LIQUORISH. There was also a “squidgy bog”. “His daddy then told him, told him, told him…” Fuck off, fuck off, fuck off.

    Paul Daniels still gets a credit in the programme for the West End juggernaut The Phantom of the Opera for his part in the special effects. So there’s that…

    Weird but fun from what I remember, Paul Daniels somehow found the time to do this when the Magic Show was still popular & Every Second Counts.

    There were plans for a reboot in the 2010s, but this only got as far as some storybooks.

    Rather mean review of what was, after all, a programme intended for little children. You might as well say that Chorlton and the Wheelies lacked grit. Daniels gets a free pass anyway, for having Hans Moretti on his programme.
