Dick and Dom in Da Bungalow

(Five does seem to be the official number of series, too. What, however, was the official last-ever show? The last-ever *live* show was on 11th March 2006; what aired on the 18th was a highlights show)
(Comic Relief originated BBC1, rpt CBBC two hrs later. ISTR a substantial recap (similar in style to the recent History of SMTV) went out around the end, but I don't have the info to hand.)

Synopsis

This is a game show/Saturday morning show that was a totally new format. There are no bits nicked from other shows, probably due to the fact that no other shows revolve around bodily functions. Six kids (known as 'Bungalow heads') stay at "Da Bungalow" over the weekend and play games to win Bungalow points and prizes. In between random sketches, cartoons, competitions and appearances from forgotten 80's TV personalities.

Games include:

Bogies Dick and Dom try to shout the word Bogies louder than the other in a random place such as a library or museum.

Creamy Muck Muck Kids throw slop all over each other. Normally has a theme - on one occasion it was The Crystal Maze, but renamed The Crystal Muck.

Eenymeenymackerackararidominackashickapoppadickapoppoompomstick Dick and Dom stick faces on to the back of members of the public's clothes without them noticing.

There were lots of others, changed frequently, but those are the most famous.

Bungalowheads with the most points often won games consoles and DVD players. Losers won forfeit prizes such as bags of air and cheese sandwiches.

Key moments

The aforementioned Creamy Muck Muck, where Dick and Dom get more involved than the kids do.

The episode where they had a fire alert and had to stop transmitting.

A caller named Charlie Nunley rang the show to play one of the games but wasn't on the right channel.


By the time "Digital Switchover" happens, he would know what the CBBC Channel is.

Melvin Odoom dressing up as Carol Vorderman for Countmuck. Imagine the outrage if it'd been the other way round…

Catchphrases

Bogies!

Bungalow points win prizes!

Go go go go go! (in Creamy Muck Muck)
