Although originally planned and transmitted as a childrens' programme, Do Not Adjust Your Set also proved to be very popular with adults.

It was one of the programmes that acted as a 'forerunner' to Monty Python's Flying Circus.

Eric Idle, Terry Jones and Michael Palin began writing zany sketches, which followed one another in quick succession.

There was an early appearance by David Jason, who appeared in a regular spoof serial as 'Captain Fantastic'. This character became so popular that his 'adventures' continued in another programme after Do Not Adjust Your Set finished.

Neil Innes and his group, the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band, provided musical interludes. Terry Gilliam supplied animations for the last few programmes.
