In which we establish that ‘Jamie & The Magic Torch’ was actually written by The Who

You think I’m kidding, right?

Just watch the cartoon’s 2 minute intro:

Never mind the opening Pete Townsend powerchords and the general Who riffage.  Never mind that, after the torch is switched on, everything looks like a scene from Tommy.  (You can’t get much more Mod than taking a trip to Cuckoo Land on a helter skelter.)  Never mind the fact that the dog Wordsworth is the spitting image of Keith Moon.

When Jamie finally flies out at the bottom of the helter skelter… take a look what he lands on.

Seem familiar at all?
