Episode 1 of 4

Junior Wizard Rincewind tries to escape Discworld's Dungeon Dimensions, the Demon King of Hell and a parrot. Stars Mark Heap.

When precocious young Eric Thursley summons a demon from the loathsome pit to fulfil his every wish, he certainly gets what he asked for.

Just... not exactly what he asked for. That's the problem with wishes.

Terry Pratchett's many Discworld novels combine a Technicolor imagination with a razor sharp wit, especially when he rewrites Faust as spotty teenage demonologist Eric.
