Wizbit - Treasure (1986) [VHS Rip (DivX)]
Description taken from Wikipedia
Wizbit was a 1986 BBC children's television show in which an alien magician called Wizbit and a large rabbit called Wooly had adventures in a place called Puzzleopolis.
Although it was stated in the show that Wizbit's year-and-a-day mission was to find out all about planet Earth, this clashed somewhat with the events witnessed on screen. Wizbit was (apparently) to learn about everyday life on earth by solving puzzles in a town inhabited by walking, talking (and often singing) sponge-balls, dice, magic wands, playing cards and 7-foot tall rabbits.
The show made an attempt to be semi-educational. The (often lateral thinking) puzzles Wizbit was set were usually presented to the audience at home, with the solutions being revealed towards the end of the episode.
The show was created by Barry Murray, with assistance from conjuror Paul Daniels. It starred Daniels and his assistant (and wife) Debbie McGee.
Wizbit's magic word was "Ostagazuzulum". Wizbit came from the planet WOW, an acronym for 'World Of Wizards'. Wizbit was visiting planet Earth for a year and a day.
