Anyone remember "It's a Mad World, World, World, World, World" on the telly?

I think they only ever broadcast the pilot. Great it were.

This is different from the movie "It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World" then?

Sounds like you mean this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0399205/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Which I haven't seen.
Toot toot.

That's the one, Gordon. I typed one too many "world"s...

It was the show that had the burglar who didn't nick anything but did annoying things like hide car keys behind the sideboard and snap the householder's Subbutteo players. And the "League of Hirsute Gentlemen", and the sketch where Christ was tempted by such things as breaking the seal on a new jar of coffee. Oh, and a figure from a cricket game being used as a sub in Subbutteo (Subbutteo featured quite heavily in the pilot), and having a big moustache drawn on it to look like Merv Hughes. It was quite funny, and I was a bit disappointed they never made a series of it. I think even people who didn't spend their childhood playing Subbutteo would have found it funny.

Speaking of slightly dodgy sounding comedy shows, my girlfriend's cousin was in a show with Simon Pegg and Sanjeev Bhaskar, OBE. It was slightly dodgy too.
Toot toot.
