Spitting Image for all ages!
20 January 2004 | by (Rijswijk, ZH, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The creators of 'Spitting Image' present a comic strip (as in a collection of short and rude funny papers) on television. Presented by four rubber animals living in the London Sewer, namely Doc Croc (who had the ability to use his tail as an extra appendage) and his three ratty underlings: Vaudeville Vince Vermin, Jemimah Wellington-Green and Luchetti Bruchetti (birth name: Lou Brush). Every week they would unleash a cavalcade of puns (mostly revolving in and around the toilet) during their framework sequence, but the real highlight of the show were crudely animated cartoons and one slightly more impressive stop motion serial from 'Incredibly Cheap Productions' in association with 'We Could Use This Set For Something Else DLC'

Some of the recurring 'comics' included the `Odd Bot Family', `Kenny McTickle and his magic Kilt', `Tommy's Time Trousers' and of course `Wooly the Wonder Sheep'. Then there were dirty spoofs of popular cartoons from the eighties and nineties (`Wee-Man and the masters of the Loonyverse', `Thunderpants' and the `Old Age Useless Nitwit Tortoises') and each week, a crappy musical guest (literally: Michael Jack-Dung, the Bin lids on the Block or W.C. Flush).

With voices provided by impressionists from Spitting Image, there was a lot for older viewers to enjoy as well. For instance, Vincent Pryce appeared to introduce `Fairy Tales of the Unexpected', Wooly the Wondersheep sounded an awful lot like Dustin Hoffman, and Atom Banana (from `False Teeth from Beyond the Stars meet Atom Banana') seemed to by voiced by Sly Stallone. It was deliciously rude and with all those puns, sight gags and references being fired left, right and center, some of the most hilarious children's programming ever.
