Tuesday Is Theme Tunes Day – Mr Benn

The Choob is showing his age again with this week’s classic theme tune.

It’s from the much-loved 1970s kids show Mr Benn, the magical adventures of a city gentleman whose visits to an extraordinary fancy dress shop – owned by a mysterious, fez-wearing shopkeeper – transported him into a series of exciting escapades dictated by the costumes he tried on.

The series was based on a character created by David McKee and only 13 episodes were made between 1970 and 1971. They were, however, regularly repeated throughout the 70s and 80s and a 14th episode was made for broadcast on a kids’ digital TV channel in 2005.

Here are those classic opening and closing titles and the excellent theme tune:
