Tickled to death!
8 July 2017 | by nnwahlerSee all my reviews

I have nothing but fond memories of this series; the only rerun I ever caught in the 46 years it's been off the air was a video on YouTube ten years ago. Definitely a potential choice for a "manufactured on demand" complete DVD set.

The show drew upon the creations of Edward Lear and Ogden Nash, and copied the "Laugh-In" format of blackout jokes and running routines—a style the other Saturday morning cartoons duplicated extensively. "Tomfoolery" stood out above the others for its dazzling graphic design, compliments of Britain's Halas & Batchelor studio; this was one series that made you glad to have a color-TV set in 1970. The show was also noteworthy for its inspired silliness and verbal wit which refused to simply write down to its kiddie audience.
