Heylo!
I did a search for this, but it didn't come up with anything. So I started one. :D

I've always been a big fan of Vic 'n' Bob, along with my sister. We ALWAYS watched this show in the early 90's. We loved it! She was about 13 & I was around 6. :shock: :lol: But we waited for it everyweek & we taped them all.
& Anyway, not long after the series finished, the tapes we had went missing & we didn't see them again. :( Until now that is. Me & my Mum were doing some closet cleaning to try & find some old christmas decorations & we found the tapes! :shock: God knows how they ended up in there! :roll:
So anyway, nearly 13 years on, me & my sis are sat watching them, pissing ourselves laughing together yet again... :lol: It feels so weird, but I remember it all so much. We watched it so constantly, I was brainwashed. :lol:

Anyway, to start the conversation off, what was your favourite song out of the ones they performed?
I liked "Cool, Cool Air!" *clicks fingers* :lol: & Maybe "Get up, get up, get out of bed!" *sings* Don't you worry about yer Bulbous Head! :lol:

& Just to make me feel better, did or does anyone fancy Bob? I used to, but I was only 6, so I guess it doesn't count... :lol:

Of COURSE I fancied Bob, he was a hot young whippersnapper back then!
They were (and are!) both very sexy.

I've found some old videos of the show in charity shops, but I don't have it all. I didn't have the foresight to tape it when it was on.



P.S. Nice signature!!!!!!!!!

Agreed! :D But Bob was definately somethin' else in those days...& he has kept more or less the same. Along with Vic (or Jim, whatever he likes to be called... :lol: ).

If you fancy seeing it again, I think I saw it lying about that UKNova website. :) I was going to download it, but then I found the tapes, which I thought was abit freaky, but hey-ho... :shock: :lol:

P.S. Nice signature!!!


Thank you very much! It's lovely isn't it? hehe. SailorEarth made it for me. *bows down to SE* She does good work! :wink: :D

She's a GENIUS, I tell you!

I love finding old videotapes with fabulous stuff on that you didn't know you had!

I downloaded some Vic and Bob from that site recently, but I can't remember what it was. Now where did I put it....

Does anyone remember the whole sketch advert about the edible tights??

I still quote that quite a lot!

"Bu-bu-bu-butterscotch!!"
"P-p-p-p-p-Pork pie!!"

:lol:

I used to really love the Smell of... Can you buy it on DVD?

No, for some stupid, daft & outrageous reason. It has never been released on DVD. But you can still get the tapes of it. I think Ebay & places like that still have some. :D

I sometimes get confused with Smell Of... with Bang Bang, but which one was it that had Mulligan and O'Hare?

That was the "Smell of", hun... :)

They are mad aren't they? I can't remember Bang Bang very well. If I saw it again I probably would, but not from memory. :(

Slade! :)

We need a DVD. Twas brilliant, better than Big Night Out IMHO (though I did like that too before you lynch me) and that's had a DVD release!

Thank you. God why don't they bring out dvd's of smell off and bang bang. Seeing as they got big night out out recently, it would make sense!

I don't know if I've done it right... :? But I've started a petition to get it released on DVD. You can sign it here: -

So, c'mon, lets get signing & you never know!

*fingers crossed* :D
