Synopsis

The series featured Geoffrey Bayldon as the title character, an eccentric 11th-century wizard who accidentally (by total immersion in water) travels through time. In the first series he arrives in the year 1969 and befriends a young red-headed boy, Edward Bennet, nicknamed Carrot (Robin Davies), who spends most of the rest of the series attempting to hide Catweazle from his father (played by Bud Tingwell) and the farmhand Sam (played by Neil McCarthy). Catweazle searches for a way to return to his own time while hiding out in a disused water tower, which he calls Castle Saburac, with his familiar, a toad called Touchwood.

The second series featured a 12-part riddle that Catweazle, transported to the 1970s, attempts to solve at the rate of one clue an episode, the solution (as he thinks) being revealed in the 13th.
