TV Set

A humorous greeting card featuring a TV test card with a cockerel and text ‘Please Do Not Adjust Your Set – Normal Service Will Be Resumed As Soon As Possible’

Of course it is nothing like the test cards that graced the TV Set in countless living rooms throughout the UK in years gone by. The test card was there to help you adjust the colour (when there was colour) and the straightness and fidelity of the picture. People would move the aerial and tweak the little knobs and dials, hoping to improve on what they could see.

The cockerel is a tribute to those days long gone. It gives a nod to all the comedy programmes that substituted bizarre alternatives to the accepted way of doing things. Can you imagine the cockerel throwing back its head and can you hear the cockerel give out its half-strangled cock-a-doodle-doo?
