When I was eight, my teacher got our class to fill out a questionnaire about our favourite type of TV programmes. I remember wanting to put my tick next to 'Comedy', but giving in to pressure from the other kids on my table, who were all voting for 'Animals'!
So I'm chuffed to bits that there's a fantastic new sketch show specially for kids, Sorry, I've Got No Head. The cast includes Marcus Brigstocke and Mel Giedroyc, as well as several other less familiar faces, (including Anna Crilly, who appears in BBC3's Touch Me, I'm Karen Taylor).
Characters include an easily pissed-off Witchfinder, some very nervy Vikings and a man who can't resist doing the Mexican Wave. My favourite bit is when we visit the tiny Scottish island of North Barasay, where the headmistress goes ahead with sports days, quizzes and school plays despite having only one, not so talented pupil, the hapless Ross. Last Friday's episode saw Dracula being scared off with some garlic bread. :)
Go on, watch some Sorry, I've Got No Head clips on YouTube.
