We used to watch every episode, some twenty years ago, me and my flatmates at university. We were 18, 19 years old and this show was for kids aged 10-14 but we found it hilarious.
One of us had his kid brother staying over for a few days, and he started us off.
It has all the characteristics of great comedy:
It was clever, very well written, contained some brilliant dialogue, more than a few memorable catch-phrases and it was very, very silly.
With a lot of old-fashioned, honest-to-goodness, hit-him-wiv'-a-big-piece-of-rubber-wood or shoot-an-arrow-in-his-behind slapstick thrown in, for cheap and easy laughs, which are the best ones, let's be honest!
And for some twenty years now, every time I've seen people snogging or when people have banged on at me about relationships, engagements, weddings and such I've been singing, far too loudly:
OOOOOOOOOOOH-HOOO-HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO: RABIES IN LOVE!!!
