Aha! I see.
I didn't go much on MP so didn't pay much attention. It was a very poor spin off of "The Goon Show" (surreal radio programme with Spike Milligan, Harry Secombe and Peter Sellars which ran throughout the 1950s). That sort of comedy relies on the "mind's eye" and doesn't really translate well to a visual medium.
"The Goon Show" is being re-run on BBC Radio 4 Extra at 8am on Tuesdays. I listen to it sitting up in bed and try not to choke on my first cup of tea of the morning!
