The main character as I remember this was Sir Lancelot. I think he was on horseback and armoured but not sure. He had at least 2 men at arms mainly dressed in yellow with red bibs I think. Maybe one was called Bert. There was also some sort of jester or minstrel who used to play the lute as I remember it. Can't remember any plots. Can't find any references to it online at all. Would like to learn the name, and more about it. kestrelgrey-gmail.com

A series based on the English legend of King Arthur. This quirky animated version of the mythical world of Camelot has all the necessary ingredients– a cast including King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, brave knights, Merlin the magician, a court jester, a plotting witch, a black knight and damsels in distress along with the requisite dragons, castles, dungeons, action and adventure – but not quite in the way you’d expect. Led by King Arthur, the pint-size hero, with his unlucky sidekick Sir Lancelot, and his nemesis the witch Morgana and her dastardly assistant, the Black Knight, these comic stories are a wacky take on the world of Camelot.
Made in Australia, this series ran in syndication for 35 seven-minute episodes.
Re: Sir Lancelot? Seen on UK TV, about 1970

Thanks for the reply, but I'm afraid that's not it although it looks like a fine cartoon. I remember the song the jester often played (I think at the end of episodes) and the amination style is totally different as well.
I found it on BBC1, which thinking about was the only channel I watched much as my family have never been able to stand adverts and BBC2 had no children's content at the time I think. Listed on 23 July 1975, so my 1970 guess seems a little out. All the few other details were just as I remembered it.
