For most hip kids in the late 70s and early 80s, there was only one place to tune in on a Saturday morning – ITV for the regular dose of Tiswas. Well, news has reached us that the show is about to return – for one night only – as Tiswas Reunited.
Tiswas was kids TV that adults enjoyed, featuring the likes of Chris Tarrant, Sally James, Lenny Henry, Bob Carolgees, John Gorman, Sylvester McCoy and Frank Carson. And on one famous occasion, Paul Weller getting a custard pie in the face.
The one-off special on ITV1 will feature all of the original cast,
along with original clips from the likes of Compost Corner, the Phantom
Flan Flinger, Flan Your Folks, the Cage and much more. Whether it’s
something to cringe at or whether the old clips are still genuinely
entertaining remain to be seen – but it can’t be any worse than that recent Swap Shop reunion.
No specified date as yet, it’s just slated for "spring 2007".
