mashed potatoes
7 March 2004 | by (Witney, England) – See all my reviews

this was an extremely bizarre show; a bloke and his badger do weird things. each series was set in a different place (a school, a zoo, their house), each packed with secret tunnels for badger and mousie (a later character who irritated me). most of the action revolved around badger coating bodger with mashed spuds, laughing like Frank Bruno, then doing it again. kid's tv, but not of the magic roundabout ilk - no fun for the rest of us. (I was 6 when it first played).
