It's the end of the term at College, and Vyvan, Rick, Mike and Neil are having a lazy summer holiday. But they end up getting evicted by Mr. Bolowski and decide to rob a bank, before making a getaway...
Richie buys an inflatable doll named Monica as his lover, and he tries to conceal it from Eddie. But it all goes terribly wrong when Richie accidentally super glues Monica to his groin, mistaking Eddie's super glue for Handcream.
A series of self contained television movies starring performers from London's "Comic Strip" comedy club and their friends. Noted for a high sense of parody of previous movies, literature, and generally everyone in sight.
Eddie has locked himself away in the toilet and Richie finds he's been inventing gadgets and only to find himself joining Eddie on a adventure through time and space on-board Eddie's time machine "The Turdis" which is a toilet cubicle.
Four mismatched university students share a house in North London: Neil (Nigel Planer), the hippy; Mike (Christopher Ryan), the cool person; Rick (Rik Myall), a would-be anarchist studying sociology; and Vyvyan (Adrian Edmondson), the punk medical student who is prone to extreme violence. Together with their bastard Russian landlord, Jerzy Balowski (Alexei Sayle), the world of these "bachelor boys" is surreal and violent, but ultimately hilarious.Written by

Personal favorite Young Ones story about the most raucously funny show episode ever - Bambi
My favorite thing to do with the Young Ones happened in a shop in Greenwich Village in the early 90's. I was in Meyers of Keswick, a British grocery in the Village with a young female coworker who trod down there with me in hopes of purchasing Christmas crackers and some English candy for the parties we were going to. We were in line waiting, and I noticed an actual Kendall Mintcake on the counter, picked it up, and screwed my face up to try to look like Ben Elton and said, "Hi," like I was Mr. Kendall Mintcake. My coworker stared blankly and I frustratedly tried to explain who The Young Ones were, Bambi, The Balowski Family, Monk deWally deHonk, Mr. Liberal,etc. to no avail. A cockney bloke standing next to us finally exploded and shouted, "Its Only The Greatest show Ever, Mate!!!" I asked him if he wanted to see how many pressups I could do. His girlfriend screamed at me that she was not being aggressive and we cracked in up in front of a few astonished bystanders.
