Thread Name: Lyr Req: Mister Pastry 1979 (Harvey Andrews)
Subject: RE: Anyone know a song about Mr Pastry ?
I have very fond memories of Mr Pastry. There was one children's show, I recall, set in a post office. The Postmistress was called Miss Print which, at the time, I found almost unbelievably funny.
And Richard Hearne often crossed over to grown-ups television doing the solo lancers act on shows like the Billy Cotton Band Show.
He did it absolutely straight-faced and exuded an air of determined dignity throughout. It was very very funny.
Mr Pastry shouldn't be forgotten. He was unique.
