OK guys, I'm looking for a specific kids show but the details I remember are scratchy at best.

It aired on ABC (Australia) early 1990's, but could have been produced in the 80's or earlier... It featured a wizard and some furry kind of pet creature. The show usually only featured two scenes: the cauldron room (the wizard would often be stirring his cauldron), and outside in the courtyard. In the courtyard there was a magical bird bath, and when the wizard stood over it, a different part of the world would be reflected in the water, the camera would then zoom in and a mini documentary about the area reflected in the water would begin.

If anyone knows what I'm talking about, your input would be greatly appreciated!
