    What is your favourite ChuckleVision episode and why?

    Red Dwarf similarities:

    *Both shows began production in 1987 and were filmed in New Broadcasting House, Manchester in the early years.

    *Jem Whippey, a sound supervisor who worked on various Red Dwarf episodes, also worked on ChuckleVision in the early 1990s.

    *Candida Julian-Jones, an associate producer throughout Red Dwarf Series 4, also produced the ChuckleVision Christmas special in 2008.

    *Mark Stonehouse, an uncredited assistant art director for two episodes of Red Dwarf Series 1, also worked as a production designer on an episode of ChuckleVision from 1990.

    *Mike Fallon, a property buyer during the first two series of Red Dwarf, worked on an episode of ChuckleVision from 1990.

    *Ken Hawkins, a location manager throughout Red Dwarf Series 8, worked on two episodes of ChuckleVision in 2008.

    i haven’t seen ChuckleVision in ages but i remember watching the season of it where there’s a running story arc about them trying to protect/find a valuable ruby for some reason. i sort of enjoyed that a fair bit, so i guess that’s my favourite.

    I like it when they say ‘to me, to you’.

    There was a line in one episode to the effect of:
    “We could be like that Doctor bloke!”
    “Who?”
    “That’s the one!”
    *confused face*

    And that is my most prevailing memory of Chucklevision

    I like the one where they find out that their whole life has been an elaborate video game, and Paul is really a smelly old tramp while Barry is a fascist murderer.

    i vaguely recall there being a character in ChuckleVision who you never saw called “Dan The Van” and i think that’s a pretty cool name to have tbh

    Not as good a name as No Slacking.

    If you watch very carefully, Starbug appears in an episode of ChuckleVision. Conversely, a reference to ChuckleVision was put in an episode of Red Dwarf but it’s very obscure and you have to know where to look for it.

    No Series VIII jokes yet? Amazing.

    I loved ChuckleVision as a kid and am still genuinely fond of it in a nostalgic way. It started going weird near the end of its run, with time travel and all sorts of sci-fi and fantasy elements, but earlier on when it was just two blokes getting everything wrong it had a silly charm to it.

    It’s also home to this genuinely excellent and surprising joke: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o1rvod7ioqs

    Hard to believe that Howard Goodall composed the theme tune too.

    ChuckleVision has always been one of those hidden-gem kids’ shows that are actually genuinely funny for all ages. It’s very well-performed with some great verbal and slapstick gags.

    Kids TV is sometimes treated as a bit of a comedy ghetto but ChuckleVision deserves the same kind of acclaim that, say, Horrible Histories (rightly) gets.

    To be fair, the brothers were awarded a Children’s BAFTA in 2008, which is quite prestigious in its own right IMO. Anyway, it’s hard to believe the series ran continually up until 2009 (and was repeated for a few years after). Here’s an episode from the final series:

    Unpopular opinion, but I never liked Chucklevision much. The older brother always gave me the creeps in a Jimmy Saville kinda way.

    This thread has just reminded me of this…

    (I was half-expecting to find that I had dreamt this, but no, there it is on YouTube in real life)

    Maybe that’s why the BBC have stopped repeating it?

    Nothing has come out against them if that’s what you’re inferring

    The Pearl Poll results can’t come quick enough.

    That falls so far below the threshold of something coming out against him that I’m disappointed you made me waste my time reading about it

    Have you learnt nothing about these threads?

    I like the episode set in Barry’s secret lemonade factory.
