BBC Releasing Lost ‘Dad’s Army’ Episode as Cartoon

The BBC will release a lost episode of classic ‘60s comedy series Dad’s Army as an animated special after uncovering a high-quality audio recording. The 30-minute episode, “A Stripe for Frazer,” aired once in 1969 and then went missing, along with two other episodes, as tapes from the era were frequently reused or junked.

The animated episode will be available through the digital BBC Store starting February 4, ahead of a Dad’s Army feature film coming out the same month. Set against the climactic final years of World War II, “A Stripe for Frazer” sees Captain Mainwaring promoting Frazer to Lance Corporal and quickly regretting it as the new LC and his rival Lance Corporal Jones compete obnoxiously for Mainwaring’s favor.
