A Saturday morning kids program, whose title was variously an acronym for "This Is Saturday, What A Show!", "Today Is Saturday, Wear A (or Wake-up And) Smile!", and "This Is Saturday, Watch And Suffer!".

A five-year-old child regularly appeared on the show in 1980 and 1981, singing "Bright Eyes" while dressed up as a rabbit. The child was Matthew Butler
, selected by producer Chris Tarrant

changed his surname to Lewis, and is known to make the odd media appearance relating to his unusual claim to fame. See more
