ADULTS have called for the Saturday morning kids’ programmes which acted as a gentle hangover cure to be brought back to TV.
Since children were given their own TV channels, adults have found themselves missing the four-hour time fillers that were the gateway from the aftermath of an alcoholic stupor to some kind of sport.
Wayne Hayes, from Burnley, said: “There would be some likable child-faced men leaping about with a girl you fancied but somehow weren’t quite meant to.
“Also, there would be a puppet. One of them was an alien who made me laugh.”
He added: “By the time I’d made my breakfast Pot Noodle there would be some unfathomable cartoon about Japanese kids turning into robot space lizards.
“As it approached lunchtime they’d all be flagging as I got stronger, like a vampire, and just as I was getting bored someone would ring up and call Matt Bianco ‘a bunch of wankers’.
“Saturday Kitchen is unmitigated evil.”
