I absolutely loved this video when I was little and still do now (don't pity me). The characters all lived in what only could be described as a dump site: the land of Do As You're Told, and all had unique names. Stoppit and Tidyup, hence the title, were the main characters. Stoppit was a small red messy little creature that looked like he had consumed one too many caffeine tablets, and Tidyup was a purple tie-wearing creature who was addicted to gherkins (and lived in a gherkin house!) and uttered nothing else but a loud bellowing "ahhhhh" like a foghorn.
I always remember Terry Wogan's strangely comforting voice introducing the audience to the other characters; Beehave and BeeQuiet the two bees; Eat Your Greens; Go To Bed; Go And Play; Clean Your Teeth; Don't Do That; Calm Down; The Big Bad I SAID NO and his pet Not Now. (Don't rely on me for accurate names!) The episodes only lasted for about 5 minutes but they seemed like a life time when I were a young'n.
I urge you to buy the video or DVD, if not then just download a music file so you can hear Terry Wogan getting excited pronouncing the characters' names! He needs a slap! To be honest it was silly but if I remember it with such fondness and still giggle when I see it, it can't be that bad can it?
