Harry Hill stars in this surreal comedy show, revolving around the previous week's shows on British television.
Heather, AMANDA LAMB, weellllllll I certainly didn't expect to see thattttt, the knitted character.. I could go on. The basis of all my childhood comedy dreams. You know I won my Junior school joke of the year 2006 because of this shows profound effect on me right.

I once saw the lass who played Harri who went on to do one of those lloyd webber shows in a shit production of wizard of oz, except Bobby Davro was in it too and there were no songs and people actually left in tears. Anyways. ALIENS ARE AMAZING RIGHT.

I will always be here for the starin' n' stylin' movie, but this show was so good that the one song Dylan sings to Yasmin in the toilets (fuckin weird) got stuck in my head for 12 years and when I finally found it on youtube I cried. DOES SHE FEEL WHAT I FEEL INSIDEEEEEE. Maybe Dylan idk. We're the girlz with the passion for fashion oooooooooo BRATZ.

PIGLEY, FERNY, MOLLY AND DANON NEVER MISS A CHANCE TO HAVE TOO MUCH FUN. IN TARA. IN IRELAND. LOTS OF EXCITEMENT FOR EVERYONE. They literally say they go to bed just to wake up early .. how wholesome is that. In a world of Kim Kardashians, be a Pigley Pig.
13. Trollz (2005–2006)
TV-Y7 | 23 min | Animation, Adventure, Comedy
The story about five trollz that learn about The Magic of the Five, and only they can use it to fight evil and protect their beloved city
it's a HAIR thing. Remember these fuckin losers? Always doing voodo, fighting goblins and wearing nail polish oh my godddd. Saphire was your favourite just like Yasmin was your favourite bratz don't even pretend that you thought the others were acceptable human beings. You bought into the idea that the perfect girl is a well behaved one. But look what Yasmin did in the Starin and Stylin movie. Not so clean now is she. Fuckin wreck.

But you know who will be better than Hetty? CRESSIE, MY LIL LIVERPOOL MOON CHILD. Alls she gots to do is put the moon in the potion mate. I used to reenact that episode with the hedgemass cake or w/e A LOT as a kid. Moon magic my dudes.

A genius mouse and his stupid sidekick try to conquer the world each night.
there's this one episode thats just a 10 minute folk song about the origin story of how the lab began?? It's called the fiddler of Ramsey or somethin and you should look it up and get it stuck in your head like it still is in mine. EDIT IT'S CALLED THE TAILOR AND THE MICE im listening to it right now and spitting. Also it's only 3 minute lmao clearly it felt longer at the time.
17. Lizzie McGuire (2001–2004)
TV-G | 30 min | Comedy, Drama, Family

TV-Y | 30 min | Animation, Family, Comedy
A rambunctious girl and her friends' adventures in school and their community.
MY NAME IS ANGELA HEY HELLO, WELCOME TO MY VERY OWN SHOW, FJDKFJDKSJF TO YOUUU, OH NO.. IT'S NINNIE POOOOOOO. This show is basically impossible to explain to people which I always have to do as apparently no one else on Earth saw it, IT'S ON YOUTUBE WAKE UP SHEEPLE. No, no one knows why they all call each other by their full names but fuck you if you think Gordy Reinheart, Johnny Abbatti, Gina Lash, Josephine Prailine, Ninnette Manoir ect aren't etched in my mind now. If you've ever watched Most popular girls in school on Youtube, Ninette was Saison before Saison was even born. C'EST CHIQUE MON AMI. Also that one time Josephine gave back her bike race medal because she said she cheated.. SHE SAID SHE HAD HELP FROM ST CHRISTOPHER ???!!! This show man oh my god. I do have to watch it back sometimes just to double check it actually happened. The whole premise and story of every episode is just Angela being bitter about Ninette. It's so weirdly animated it makes no sense it's everything you'd imagine a little me would love and I DID.
19. Kerching! (2003–2006)
Children's comedy drama series about the adventures of teenage wheeler-dealer Taj Lewis.
TICK TOCK. DON'T STOP. RUDE BOIIII. Oh my god dot com millionare, Taj was so before his time. Danny made my favourite joke of my childhood (I'm a poet and I didn't realise it!) TAMSINNNNN. Yeah. This show was cute.

DW was me just fyi
21. Stitch Up (2001–2003)
BUT YOU CAN'T KEEP A LID, ON REMOTE CONTROL KIDDDDDD. It was like a prank show before youtube took this thing and made it the devils work. Jackass for teenyboppers.
22. Stupid (2004– )
Comedy, Family, Fantasy
King Stupid and his mistreated Butler Goober, are responsible for every stupid thing that happens on Earth. King stupid is at helm with his machine, making kids poke each other with "Devil ... See full summary »
Hands up who had a wild and leery crush on king stupid before growing up and learning it was MARCUS BRIGSTOCK IN A WIG aw hell no. Everyone knows devil finger and the kid who wished his parents would divorce and I AM THE ONLY NEW GIRL. God fuck we we're so treated you know that right. So lucky to have a sketch show just for kids with some weirdly surreal ones and some fuckin messed up ones tbh. ALSO THE PURPLE GREMLIN THING is the basis of every nightmare I've EVER had.
23. Nelly Nut Live! (2003–2005)
30 min | Animation
When you also grow up and find that GREG DAVIES WROTE FOR THIS SHOW. I adored this growing up and not just because of the Nellie representation before it became an #indiename and not just what my parents call me. So I found an ep online and oh my god it's annoying. How and why did I love this.. HIYAAA NUTTERS is still something I use every once in a while but the show itself is so loud and annoying. Idk I probably liked it because it felt grown up even though it SO BLATANTLY WASN'T.
24. The Queen's Nose (1995– )
25 min | Comedy, Drama, Family
Children's series about a magic coin that can grant wishes.
Oh my god Harmony you are my soul. The theme tune is like entering another realm. In the words of Sandra Bernhard ironically using a kaleidoscope "oh my god I'm tripping .... it's like the 60s" All the characters were so gosh darn COOL like with their beach house and childrens home and the fair ground and all the random places they went. ugh.
25. The Story of Tracy Beaker (2002– )
15 min | Comedy, Drama, Family
Tracy Beaker is a 10 year old child, who was placed in a children's home. Tracy makes new friends along the way, and causes mischief where ever she goes.
Unpopular opinion - the musical episode was olivier, bafta and quite frankly, academy award snubbed. Roxy Wellard is better than you. Sid was daddy af but you weren't about to tell your mum THAT over dinner. MMMM STRAWBERRY MY TOTAL FAVOURITE always comes into my head at random moments..
26. Corneil and Bernie (2003– )
TV-Y7 | 88 min | Animation, Comedy, Family
This show contains numerous adventures about just a guy and his talking dog
Most unrealistic thing being he called a dog Corneil. Sassy academic dog was a good role model to us all.
27. Dick and Dom in da Bungalow (2002– )
120 min | Comedy, Family, Game-Show
DICK. sorry. Okay so Bogies, it's an art form and it should be respected as part of history. The thought of Dick spreading his creamy muck muck in the faces of children makes me think this show can never make a come back.
28. M.I.High (2007– )
28 min | Action, Comedy, Crime
Four school children work for MI9, and fight against a criminal agency called skul.
When ur fave is now leading lady to Alexander Skarsgard tho. Also Cat from Red Dwarf was in this and kid me was like oh my god I'm so cultured.
29. The Basil Brush Show (2002–2007)
25 min | Comedy, Family
Well loved fox Basil Brush returns in a modern day kids sit-com.
ADMIT WHEN YOU WENT TO SEE WHICH EVER HARRY POTTER IT WAS YOU THOUGHT THAT'S NOT KATIE BELL THAT'S MOLLY FROM BASIL BRUSH. Also there was an Anil meme going round recently which made me laugh like AH HA HA HA BOOM BOOM. Oh my god remember Mortimer Brush his evil twin. MADDISON THE AMERICAN.
30. Jeopardy (2002– )
25 min | Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi
When 8 kids from Falkirk go to find UFO's in an area of Australia already noted for alien contacts the group soon realise that they have signed up for more than they bargained for in this ... See full summary »
I watch this show at least once every two years to remind myself that tv can be as good as this. This show has: Aliens, car crashes, cave paintings, romance, creepy twins, police chases, secret agents, a diamond theft sub-plot (no, really), more romance and regional accents. They get away with some scary shit and even throw the word Bitch in at one point. There are some issues like it was obviously aimed at kids so sometimes they just leave plots like “must have been the aliens” then say nothing more, and it has not been re-broadcast in a decade. The acting is shitty at times and there are random sexist comments throughout. There’s a reason it has not been re-broadcast, it’s wild. Take a show, film it in the style of Blair witch, revolve it around horrifying plot twists then give it to the children. It's actually BRILLIANT and quite frankly much better to watch as an adult. Also my parents went to Falkirk without me and I cried. Also the line "you can't be here.. because you're meant to be dead" is 10/10 CBBC PROGRAMMING and they WISH they could reach this standard of show now. I have so many theories and plots and ideas and I am actually still very invested in this.
31. Raven: The Island (2006– )
The evil Nevar threatens the peaceful existence of Raven's childhood homeland, the island of Alaunus, when he captures the Enchanted Oak and begins to cut Staves of Power for his hooded ... See full summary »
Can't find the show page but RAVEN - THE WAY OF THE WARRIOR. I really wanted to do that challenge where you sit in a lil round boat and have to pull yourself to the middle. Basically as an adult I got a job in outdoor education and basically did all the jumping off shit challenges in harnesses all the fucking time and IT'S NOT THAT FUN. IT HURTS AND IT'S REALLY FRICKIN HARD.
32. The Best of Friends (2004– )
5 best friends put their friendships to the test in 3 time-testing challenges.
Let's find out .. if they'll still be .. the best.. OF FRIENDS. The blue sweets drama oh my god. Barney and Rani where goals end of discussion. Everyone wanted to be on this and then realised they don't have FIVE FRIENDS that's so many.
