Michael Bentine's Potty Time - The Complete First Series

Potty Time was a popular and beloved UK television puppet show that began in the 1970s and was the wacky creation of the multi-talented writer/director Michael Bentine. Universally vertically challenged, the Potty hand puppets were characterised by their prominent noses and costumes that obscured their other physical characteristics. Bentine's beloved show, which was geared for children but boasted an adult audience as well, offered a challenge to accepted notions of many aspects of life and was regarded as harmlessly rebellious. The highlight of Potty Time usually involved a mini-explosion of some kind, as Bentine knew this would delight the kids at home.
This DVD has numerous extras including an interview with Bentine's son, Richard, and additional commentary with some of the actual puppets used in the classic programme.
