David Jason described the show as "all sorts of nothing much. Whatever else you wanted to say, there was nothing like it at the time and all the kids locked onto it. It spoke to them - they could feel proprietorial about it. It was their humor: none of the adults got it. Mums and Dads would say I don't know what you're watching this rubbish for and that just elevated it higher in kids estimations. It was mad." See more »
First of all, a big hello to all our viewers. Hello Mrs. Green, hello Mr. Green, hello Mum. I think that's everyone.

Just gotta shout it: This show is AWESOME! I've just watched my DVD of "Do Not Adjust Your Set" and it's really, really good! I read about it in a book about Monty Python, and at that time, no copies were know to exist. I thought it was dead forever. Then one day I found out that some had been found and it was on DVD. I was expecting it to be pretty good, but no-- it's REALLY good! So much fun. This show is much more "Pythonic" and slightly less dated than John Cleese and Graham Chapman's show "At Last the 1948 Show." Since it was supposedly a kid's show (but not really), it gets wonderfully silly. The way Eric Idle, Terry Jones, and Michael Palin appear in this series, they sound just like they do in Flying Circus. Yet D.N.A.Y.S. is its own scene, and it's groovy, man! And it's got the Bonzo Dog Dooh Dah Band from The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour playing weird, cool songs each episode. As if things couldn't get any better. And then they do-- Eric Idle occasionally plays and sings with them. Lovely! Whoever thought is was a good idea to erase this series deserves to be tarred and feathered. But he's probably dead by now anyway.
