I was young too, and it was never shown again even as a repeat in the UK and never offered for broadcast in any other country (however, some evidence may exist that ABCTV here in Australia may have shown the pilot episode in 1993/1994???).
For 1992, this show was a slice of TV not seen seen since the golden years. The 90s were drought years for TV and indeed the BBC suffered greatly. If circumstances with it's broadcast were changed we may have gotten more than just 6 eps.
I imagine the CGI Epic bits mentioned are from the "Dreams iMagic" episode? It is so 90s isn't it? The funny thing is that "Dreams iMagic" is the pilot episode, but it was shown last in the run. The episode should be viewed first as it offers obvious introductions.
The guest stars in the show are fantastic, Tony Robinson, Bernard Breslaw, Dora Bryan, Jon Pertwee, Julian Clarey....the list goes on. I have a DVD copy of all the eps that were taped from the TV, but the quality is really good for a bootleg. TV Zone Magazine ran a feature in a Special in 1997 - worth traking down.
