Melvin and Maureen's Music-a-grams was an educational CBBC show about music which ran from 1992 to 1996 starring Sophie Aldred and Matthew Devitt. The show was rerun on CBeebies in late 2000s.
Melvin and Maureen ran a music shop which sold "Music-A-Grams"- a recording of music for a certain purpose. Sometimes customers came asking for a particular music-a-gram. Melvin and Maureen also sang songs, and told stories to illustrate how musical instruments could be used to create different effects, or on a particular theme. The stories also involved a trio of soft toys, led by a teddy bear named Groovy Ted, who were on a constant quest for musical stardom.
