   "The children in Time Zone 2 are falling asleep.
    We are gaining Time Zone 2, the children are-e-e-e-e.... dreaming!"

  spacer number two

    Captain Zed and PJ patrol the dream time skies in Dreamship 12A, fearlessly
    foiling the many attempts of The Nightmares to invade children's dreams.
    Zed is just one of many such patrols operating out of Dream Base, wherein
    The Commander and Larry and their various aides scan the Dream Monitors
    for signs of sabotage and subterfuge. Zak Zed's job would be a whole lot easier
    without the unwelcome rivalry of a fellow agent, Captain Flannel. But Flannel's
    so inept he usually foils his own conniving plans for himself. And that means Zed
    can get on with the job, keeping Nightmares like Snort and Mutter at bay and kids
    dreams safe and sound for another night...

      Larry   Captain Flannel

    Created by Tony Collingwood, Captain Zed was developed from ideas first
    explored in his classic short film Rarg.Tony tells us about this development in
    his Q&A with The Hound, back in December 2001. There are some splendid
    designs and concepts on show here, like the pillow-shaped Dreamships, the
    Sheep at their Dream Monitors, even the Captains' suits with those little pillows
    posing as epaulettes. The idea of each episode being set within the make-believe
    worlds of different children's imaginations opens up a bottomless chest of ideas
    to explore...     

    Captain Zed was animated in North America and the characters given distinct
    'American' voices, probably to keep the production partners happy. But you
    can sleep peacefully, because the series suits the accents and indeed, despite
    its Saturday Morning structure it remains distinctly, eccentrically British at
    its heart...
