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 (1986) and Mr. Bean (1990) were influences with their use of silent comedy and gibberish. See more »

Desperately Winless
22 March 2015 | by eamonsterSee all my reviews

4 episodes in and Wow… talk about dross TV.

There is only one good element to this show and that's the puppet dog. The dog is the creation of the people that helped to make another BBC show called 'Mongrels' (epic win). To watch Pompidou just to enjoy the puppet character Marion though would be like; eating crap just to enjoy a piece of sweet corn.

BBC Controller of Comedy Commissioning Shane Allen said: "The concept is wonderfully imaginative, the writing hugely inventive and it's the perfect vehicle for Matt – one of a handful of performers in the whole world who could pull this off."

Well.. it isn't, it isn't, it may well be and he couldn't. The "writers" last "wrote" for Chucklevision BTW.

Danny Cohen should have stopped this sham… was he on holiday?
