Trivia

An advert for the video/DVD compilation "The Best of 2DTV" was banned in early 2003, as it featured a sketch wherein President George W. Bush puts his video in a toaster. UK law states that adverts may not be offensive to individuals and that representations of living people can only be used with their permission. See more »

This show is a must see! It's a satirical review of the week's news and has a great cast of characters, including George Bush and his best friend, a sock puppet; the Beckhams; the Blairs and big John Prescott and many more. Animation's great, voices great, show - GREAT!
