Trivia

When first aired in America on MTV, the sound of Niel's snot-blowing was considered offensive and was censored. Instead, his "achoo" was looped over it. See more »

Goofs

When Vyvyan puts the pillowcase over Neil's head to stop him from sneezing, he still manages to sneeze it off. In the same shot that it is blown off, you can clearly see a black bar behind his head that was used to throw it off. See more »

Quotes

Vyvyan: You can't clean the toilet, Neil - it'll lose all its character!

12 August 2006 | by princess_preciousSee all my reviews

this had to be one of the funniest of the young ones! i did find that one of the 'jokes' was not followed by the 'canned' laughter;; "Neil---i hope mike comes back with the cure. Vyvyan---- no no Neil- its madness this week." MR damage was quite funny also with he way he spoke to the police officer about his head staying in the vicinity of the shoulders--- alright! (or said as AO RWITE!)I've watched the young ones since i was two and have been told that not only was this my favourite at that age but the show had to be boycotted at home because i would stand in front of the television until it had finished. my parents and grandparents watched it the first time it came out and did not become fans when the repeats were shown-- no matter how many times you watch them, they never get boring!
