Trivia

Matt Lucas said the series was an attempt to do a family friendly series like Worzel Gummidge (1979), one of his childhood favourites. He has also said series such as Pingu (1980) and Mr. Bean (1990) were influences with their use of silent comedy and gibberish. See more »

The worst comedy I have ever seen
23 April 2015 | by threehundreddogsSee all my reviews

Everyone who worked on this should be ashamed of themselves for being absolute failures. Not only have they completely failed to understand what works in silent comedys, it also fails to understand what works in any comedy. There is an inexcusably low amount of jokes and the jokes it had I could see coming from a mile away. Also, every single one of these boring, milquetoast, stupid jokes went on for about two minutes.

This is the worst comedy I have ever seen, and that is coming from someone who actively seeks out bad movies. Painfully, unreasonably bad. So bad I can't even understand the mindset of the writers. I can't imagine how anyone could ever think this was funny. I'd be embarrassed for it if I wasn't so angry and astonished. It also makes me sad because it's attempts to bring back the dead genre of silent comedy probably did more bad than good. An absolute waste. Watch this if you're interested in just how bad comedys can be. Otherwise, avoid at all costs.
