Welcome to the TV.COM Guide for Horrid Henry. Based on the popular award-winning children book series by Franseca Simon. Henry is horrid. His parents, younger brother, teachers, neighbours and relatives all say so. If someone’s put itching powder in someone’s swimming trunks, sold their brother as a slave, or flattened all the tents on the family camping holiday, you can bet it’s Henry. Henry is Lord High Excellent Majesty of the Purple Hand gang. He loves comics, money, practical jokes and hates brothers, injections, homework and well-meaning adults. From where Henry’s standing, life is just not fair – the rest of the world is against him. Teachers, relatives and babysitters alike try to avoid him at all costs. Even his parents argue over whose turn it is to look after him. Henry isn’t trying to be truly horrid – it’s just something that comes naturally to him. Henry wages a constant battle against the tyranny of adults and will stop at nothing to outwit the enemy: namely his long suffering parents, teacher Miss Boudicca Battle-Axe and his perfect brother, Peter. Peter’s is always shocked by the behaviour of his brother and always falls for Henry’s tall tales of blood curdling monsters and pixies in the garden!
