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.[1]

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.
