Three small brothers nicknamed Toughy, Smarty and Mouse run away to find an uninhabited island - as far as possible from the do s and don ts of the real world. Everyone dreams of running away at least once in their lifetime. Toughy, Smarty and Mouse discover an island which seems perfect. Sun, sand, fruit in the trees, fish in the sea. No haircuts. No school dinners. No goodnight kisses. Best of all, no grown-ups. Or so they think until they discover Cornelius Button, the great grasshopper expert who lives with his housekeeper, Lupus, on the other side of the island. There is also a villain to threaten their idyll. But in the end, Grasshopper Island remains a happy place where they all enjoy life in their own particular way. Filmed in the seventies in Wales and Corsica, this adventure series is still being tracked down by fans who saw it originally.
Well recorded but a dismal programme- not how I remembered it at all!Published 8 months ago by I. Trafford
Good to see this again. Episodes should be thirteen, but maybe they blended some episodes together and renamed themPublished 9 months ago by Frank Grainger
