Show Summary

Chucklevision has been on our screens since 1987 which, is a over 16 years. Back then - for the first two series anyway - the show was a lot different than it is today. The Chuckle Brothers (who are real-life brothers) presented a show about different topics including sport, travel and fashion - things they could use a few tips on themselves. From 1989 onwards, the show changed and every week we got to see the disastrous duo Paul and Barry get into all kinds of mishaps. It seems wherever they go they can do no right! You may recognise some characters that crop up from time to time. There's their brother Jimmy Patton (who is a double act with other brother Brian) playing "No Slacking". Brian himself usually appears quite often too. Its like a family reunion in some episodes! A character we hear a lot of but never see, just like Maris in Fraiser, is Dan the Van who still persists in giving the pair various jobs no matter how bad they do. The bike they ride around on is called the Chuck-mobile. Their housing has changed somewhat, too: For the fifth season (1992), they got mobile and towed a caravan behind their bike. In seasons 6 and 7 they used a converted watermill as a base for operations. Since then, their home has not been seen. In 2002, ChuckleVision had a change of direction. The series for that year was a continuous mystery serial. Of course, the unique brand of Chuckle comedy was injected into the plot. Paul and Barry carried it off very well and this has spawned shorter serials in the show in the recent series - such as the popular Purple Pimple episodes (a take on the Scarlet Pimpernel). 2004's season also held a landmark - Barry shaved off his tradmark Chuckle mousetache!!! Thankfully, it returned the following year. ChuckleVision is not the only show Paul and Barry have been in. In 1985 they made it big with a thirteen episode series called Chucklehounds, which was more of a pre-school show. They also made several series of a gameshow called To Me, To You (echoing their catch-phrase) in the late 90's. Every year they also appearing in pantomime and tour the country with their self-penned stage show. 2005's show is called Pirates of the River Rother.
