Faffner Hall is a grand music conservatory where the residents -- human, animal and monster -- enjoy making music of all types. After the Hall's founder, Fughetta Faffner, dies, her ghost continues to haunt the hall. Eventually the Hall falls into the hands of her villainous, music-hating great-great-grandnephew, Farkas Faffner. He moves in, and wants to rid the Hall of its collection of musical instruments. Fughetta's ghost is forced to work overtime to defeat Farkas's schemes. Fughetta is aided by youngsters Mimi and Riff, and the eccentric Wild Impresario.
Each episode studies a certain music curriculum created by Candian University of York professors John Paynter and R. Murray Schafer.
This show featured puppets made both by the Creature Shop and the Muppet Workshop; it was taped at the Newcastle-upon-Tyne facilities of ITV contractor Tyne Tees Television, which co-produced the show and distributed it across the ITV network.
