Chuckle Vision Chuckle Chuckle Vision ... just hearing the catchy theme tune is enough to bring a smile to your face if you're a child of the eighties or nineties (or even beyond - I was surprised to learn that the series continued to grace our screens until 2009). Now, series one and two of the hilarious, madcap, much loved show featuring The Chuckle Brothers are available on DVD courtesy of Simply Media.
The Chuckle Brothers aka Barry and Paul Elliott were a TV phenomenon, with their unique humour that transcends kids' TV to entertain all ages, and in 2008 they received the Special Award at the Children’s BAFTAs for their work. Chucklevision was one of the BBC’s longest running children’s series, on our screens from 1987 to 2009.
The Complete Series One arrived on DVD on 25th July 2016 and features 13 original barmy episodes. With laughs and larks aplenty, Paul and Barry Chuckle try to launch their own television series, with a little help from Simon Lovell, the magician extraordinaire, and Billy Butler’s Armchair Theatre. It’s quite a show with dancing, singing, conjuring and even bodybuilding as the brothers try their hand at a bit of everything for our entertainment. The episodes from this series are: Breakfast, Dance, Sport, Movies, Fitness, Halloween, Antiques, Travel, Fashion, Magic, D.I.Y., Open Ear and Christmas.
The second series of the wacky and thoroughly entertaining show aired from 1988 - 1989 and now
Chucklevision The Complete Series Two, featuring another 13 zany episodes, arrives on DVD on 29th August 2016. This series sees the boys investigate hobbies, farming and U.F.O.s, celebrate Christmas and the Australian Bicentennial, perform with a symphony orchestra and learn the art of puppetry, invent a robot and observe wildlife... and that’s not all! (Episodes: Clean Up, Australia, Nature Watch, Music, Hobbies, Christmas Special, Farming, U.F.O., Invention, Hi-Tech, Puppets, Fishing, Circus)
I used to think they were hilarious when I was a kid but I wasn't sure what the Madhouse kids would make of them - they were won over by their madcap antics and silly sense of humour though, commenting that they were a bit like a grown up version of Mr Tumble mixed in with Mr Bean ! They also liked the fact that the shows are educational as well as entertaining.
