"You and Me, Me and You, lots and lots for you to do..."
Mostly hanging around a market stall with a couple of raggedy puppets covering pre-school curricular basics. Still, at least sometimes Garry Wilmot was in it. Not this one though. Not this one...

A magically alive superhero teddy bear with a spotty alien sidekick fights an evil cowboy and his henchmen, a fat man and a skeleton. That is all.

"You must have seen the movie, you must have read the book..."
Mark and Martyn endure the adventures of Bob Godfrey's mellow yellow feline, Henry's Cat. Do you know someone who knows what he knows? You must know Henry's Cat. You MUST.

"Llllet's get rrreadyyy to infringe copyright..."

Inspired by their sister podcast If You Like (this week covering WWE coughSHAMELESS PLUGcough), Mark and Martyn take a trip back to 1990 when wrestling was all colourful tights and saggy stomachs. It's the Royal Rumble match, full of all the faces you'd recognise in the eighties, and plenty that you won't as well. Sorry Dino Bravo...

"Up above the streets and houses, Rainbow climbing high.."

...Geoffrey sticks his bum out the window, poos in Bungle's eye. Yes it's Rainbow, the eternal target of all nostalgic kids' TV jokes. How have Mark and Martyn avoided it for so long? Ha ha ha, twangers, etc.
BONUS CONTENT - stick around at the end of the podcast for some uncharacteristic serious political discussion. SPOILERS: we wished the UK had voted "remain."
