Viewer participation competition where the object each week to identify a six-letter word.

Each letter would be identified via a sketch of some variety. At the end of the programme, Mr Noseybonk (a man wearing a mask with a very, very long nose) would run around a park or some such location looking at different objects - the first letters of these prominent objects being the answer to the write-in competition.

Other characters included the O-Men (Sylvester McCoy and David Rappaport), Biggum the giant - all you ever saw of him was his sandal - and Pterry the pterodactyl.

Reprised to an extent with See it, Saw it.
