BENN IS BACK!

Mr Benn’s Jungle Safari

We have had the pleasure of witnessing the adventures of Mr Benn on screen for over 45 years now. Visiting the Shopkeeper at the costume shop, Mr Benn would try on a different outfit before being magically transported to another world. He’s been a clown, a wizard, a spaceman and a cook, as well as a hunter, zookeeper, cowboy and a pirate. He’s helped animals in a zoo, restored a dragon’s dignity and foiled a wicked baron in a hot air balloon. Mr Benn’s last adventure went out on air in 2005 and since then we’ve been waiting with baited breath for the next instalment…

Well, the wait is over – Mr Benn is back! Accompanied by his best pal Eddie, he’s tackling the modern world in his characteristically unique way. With the Shopkeeper helping him to protect his passions, Mr Benn is able to enjoy his exploits, even if sometimes things might not go quite to plan. Have a look at our video above and let us know what you think of Mr Benn’s brand new adventure! He’s prone to monkeying around and he can act a little bananas at times but safari, so good…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So what happens in Mr Benn’s Jungle Safari?

Mr Benn visits the costume shop with his mate, Eddie the dog. Eager to embark on another exciting adventure, they try on their safari costumes (complete with pith helmets) and get ready for a magical new journey. Before they can leave however, the Shopkeeper appears and helps them to understand the protection The Insurance Emporium can provide in the event that things go wrong. Armed with this knowledge, Mr Benn and Eddie disappear through the door of the changing room and deep into the depths of the jungle. Unfortunately, this is where they surprise an otherwise good-natured gorilla. Eddie’s camera gets broken and there are just a couple of bumps and bruises to show for it. Oh heck…
