Trivia

When Kenny Everett moved to the BBC, some new characters for this show were created due to disputes with the previous television station, Thames Television. Thames argued that they owned the rights to the characters, not Kenny. Therefore new characters, such as Cupid Stunt were invented. Some characters were very similar to previous ones, for example the similarities between Sid Snott and Gizzard Puke. See more »

All done in the best possible taste!

It is hard to see why Monty Python and Benny Hill have gone on to become so popular and legendary worldwide, while The Kenny Everett Television Series has remained virtually unknown. Kenny Everett is as Funny and fresh as the Pythons and certainly no worse than Benny Hill. Any Americans who havent heard of Cuddly Ken must track down the tapes, you will be guaranteed to love and laugh them to death. Favourite characters include, Cupid Stunt,Sid Snot, Gizzard Puke, Maurice Mimer, Spider-man, Marcel Wave and Up your way. Favourite sketches are any with Cupid or Sid, but inparticularly the hillarious Spider-man sketches. Like the one in wich Spidey tries every toilet and they are all being used untill he finally gets one and cant find his zip to, erm, releave himself. Or the one in wich Spidey jumps through a Daily Bugle window and breaks wind. To wich the cast and crew break up into fits of laughter. "Oh but im telling you the plot, go see it yourself. Its all done in the best Posssssssssssible taste!"
