Only 14 episodes
Chiefly written by Paul McDermott and included such characters as:
Flacco played by Paul Livingston . Flacco spends most of series one in a box, but in the second series
he comes out and plays various different character
s which prop up "some
mediocre plot line", as he puts it.
's character is preformed by Michael Petroni. Bob, appears each week, seemingly
haunting Tim. He's Bob, and he's got a problem. He spends his time
trying to kill things, although what it actually is remains a mystery,
but in any case, Bob gets seriously injured
in all the episodes, but
he'll always be back.
Bob Downe is a character played by Mark Trevorrow. Bob Downe is the star of Shitsu Tonka TV. He does everything from selling
things to hosting game show
s and current affairs
shows to doing a 'where
are they now' show.
Khym Lamm plays the Shitsu Tonka newsreader. She gives reports on the state
of the Shitsu Tonka world.
Paul also appears as Troy The Invincible
. Each week, Troy attempts to
demonstrate the class
struggle, which usually ends up with him losing
a body part or setting himself alight but, of course, he is always patched
up by next week because he's invincible... but that's gotta hurt!
Richard plays Uncle Biff Happy in a series of advertisements trying to
for Shitsu Tonka. These ads are always accompanied by a
couple (played by Tim and Richard. Tim's the woman!), who say
how wonderful the insurance is.
There are also a lot of claymation
characters who join in the party.
Thulgore is the boys' pet
thing. He lives a comfortable life in the cargo
hold of the Titanic II, eating the garbage and the occasional unwelcome
visitor to the ship. There is also Ross, a cockroach
who has a special
relationship with Flacco, and then there are some other assorted
