Alphabet Castle is an educational children's television program produced in the UK and created by Michael Cole. It began in September 1993 with a series of 27 episodes aired on CITV, and ran until December 1995. It had three main characters: King Alpha, Queen Bet, and Gobbledygook, an animated turkey.
