Mr Benn Shorts: As If By Magic… (U)

Framed Film Club

1970s favourite Mr Benn

These classic 1970s animations are as enchanting as ever. Each time Mr Benn tries on a different costume, he finds himself in another world and on a brand new adventure.

Mr Benn is the ordinary, bowler-hatted office worker who lives in the ordinary suburban street of Festive Road. However, when he tries on a costume in a mysterious costume shop, he steps out of the changing room into a different time and place, appropriate to his apparel. His adventures include him being a cook, a clown and discovering an incredible flying magic carpet.
