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 »

Absolute madness in the tradition of Monty Python
6 January 2001 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Classic television show and very hard to find these days. Shown recently on cable here in Oz. Hilarious sketches and Cleo Rocos is gorgeous. Very clever and a finite work as Kenny died a few years ago. Should have been a hit in America as Monty Python has been.
