I loved this show when it first came out, about 14 years ago. I thought the name "The Orange Organics" was the best name ever for a band, and although Pugwall himself wasn't the hottest boy on TV, he was a decent bloke. I remember Jenny was supposed to be a spunk too, but my recollection of the character is that she whined a lot. There was also a rival for Pugwall's love (I think her name may have been Allison?) who at one point sang "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" at a school carnival. Nice.
My (27 year-old) sister started humming one of the songs from Pugwall at our Mother's Day dinner last night (what a treat for Mum!), and I had the music from this show in my head all night. The number she was singing was one of their instrumental pieces, which included some hand-claps in the middle of it, but there are so many others I thought of: "We're all Gonna Have a Party", "Morning to Midnight"...and a couple of other ones I can't quite remember at the moment (but they were damn good). Aaaah, Pugwall, rock on!
