Trivia

The idea for the show came from a series of skits from The Late Show (1992) entitled "Wallaby Jack". See more »

Goofs

There is a running gag through out the serious of deliberate continuity and factual errors. For example when two people go to shake hands there is a cut to a close up shot of two hands shaking, but it always the same clip no matter who we see about to shake hands. See more »

Quotes

Russell Coight: Some of the animals are nocturnal, so the best time to see them is at night. Only you can't see them, because it's dark.

Hysterical

This is by far one of the funniest shows on television. If you've never watched it, you're missing out. Even people who don't like this silly type of humour will get a giggle. Congrats to the team for making a hilarious Aussie show, keep it coming!
