Another delight of children's tv of the 1980s. Chances are, anyone who can remember Trapdoor, Count Duckula and What-a-Mess can remember this one.

My memory of the plotlines is somewhat sketchy (or, um, nonexistent), but it had a series of characters named after the kind of commands a mother would give. Tidyup was a big purple thing with blue hair, a tie and an amiable grin, which moved slowly. Stoppit, by contrast, looked like an electrocuted red pom-pom and bounced. It also had the two bees, BeeHave and BeeQuiet. An early example of subliminal messages?
