(I did consider making each episode available individually, but I feel you need to see the entire series for it to make complete sense.)
I remember seeing this on television as a boy and cannot recall it ever being repeated.
First shown in 1971.
Starring: Patricia Hayes, Charles Hawtrey, Frank Muir, Julian Orchard, Tim Brooke-Taylor
Directed by: Joy Whitby12 episodes of the children's fairytale drama.
Everyone dreams of running away at least once in their lifetime. Three brothers sail away to find Grasshopper Island which is perfect: sun, sand, fruit in the trees and fish in the sea. No winter woolies, no haircuts, no school dinners, no goodnight kisses, and best of all, no grown ups. Or so they think. Then they discover Cornelius Button (Julian Orchard), the grasshopper expert, who lives with his housekeeper, Lupus (Patricia Hayes), on the other side of the island. There are other discoveries too. Adventures, dangers and even a villain to threaten their happiness. But in the end Grasshopper Island remains a place where they can all enjoy life in their own special way.
Basically it is about 3 orphan brothers (Toughy, Smarty and Mouse) who run away from home and the adventures they have on what they believe is an uninhabited Island.
