Its an 80s thing
19 November 2001 | by (southend) – See all my reviews

Careful watching of the series will reveal that one Mike Myers actually appears in it. What he is doing there is anyone's guess.

If you were born at a certain time in Britain it was impossible not to watch the baffling extavaganza which was the wide awake club . Mallett is insane , and his game 'mallett's mallett which involved beating a child who did'nt answer a question quick enough, spawned violent imatations in playground around the country.

Watching the show at an age where it is impossible to tell whether a show is good or bad mallett's certainly did stand out, and was recognised when it was included in the ' top 100 kids shows of all time '.
