This complete load of old nonsense was an absolute blast from start to finish.
The show started in 1978 and ran until 1986, with some 70 episodes and 4 Christmas specials (1980 – 1983). This was madcap Cheggers at his very best. After the preliminaries (i.e. the theme tune), the show would start with our hero dashing out to centre screen and going ‘Yerrrsss!’
Then the fun would really start, two teams of school kids, a red one and yellow one, would answer all sorts of pop trivia, jump round on inflatable things, get covered in foam and stuff, generally have a whale of a time, then there’d be a musical interlude from one current pop colussus or another, more jumping around and then time to go home. Or in Keith’s case, out on the lash… allegedly, possibly…
