    I stii think the young ones was much better than Bottom. Did they not have a stage show called the dangerous brothers?

    “I said a hip hop
    Hippie to the hippie
    The hip, hip a hop, and you don't stop, a rock it out
    Bubba to the bang bang boogie, boobie to the boogie…

    This is the show that got me hooked on all things Gerry Anderson.

    Rik and Ade started out as the dangerous brothers, quite right, then did the young ones, then bottom. At its best bottom was great, and they did a live show which was especially rude

    Suzi, poignantly, Rik's last performance was telling a story on Dave's Crackanory

    I went to one of the live bottom shows and i laughed so much my sides were sore. The live were so much better as they could really let the characters lose and be who they really were. Brilliant.

    I was lucky enough to go to the last 2 live shows in Nottingham, the 1st I went to w had o move seats as it was being filmed so endediup from close to the stage to the front of the circle. There's a quick pan round where Mel, Garth, Donna and I are seen laughing for 1 second, my claim to fame lol. The stage show allowed them to be more outrageous and not restricted by TV but also Rick Mayall forgot some lines on occasion and the ad libbing was hilarious. The fifths favorite line for me was the time traveling outhouse toilet, named.... The Turdis!

    Used to love this show from former Yugodlavia. I sort of fancied the girl in it.
