A Saturday morning kids program, whose title was variously an acronym for "This Is Saturday, What A Show!", "Today Is Saturday, Wear A (or Wake-up And) Smile!", and "This Is Saturday, Watch And Suffer!". Classic cartoons were interspersed with wild, anarchic skits about Flan, and special appearances by then-hot pop stars. Written by Mike Konczewski

Tiswas and O.T.T.
27 March 2005 | by psyduck-psyduckSee all my reviews

I enjoyed watching Tiswas, but felt that O.T.T. was unfairly treated. Tiswas was a great programme and I don't care what people say about Dick and Dom, you cannot compare it to Tiswas. The thing about Tiswas is it had few if any rules, which is what made it so great. I cannot in a million years imagine Dick and Dom grabbing kids and pulling them from behind the desk by their ears, within five minutes it would be taken off the air. Tiswas is a classic children's show and will never be repeated or bettered by Dick and Dom or anyone. I can say this because, the world has become so stupid, what with political correctness and various other things. Half the things done on Tiswas were just great fun, now they would be close to child abuse. Tiswas was a reflection of how the world of Saturday morning kids TV should have stayed, if it hadn't been for political correctness idiots and people who watch programmes so they can write in and complain about them hence (O.T.T.) It was Tiswas, with semi naked ladies, if you knock O.T.T. your knocking Tiswas
