    • NOTES (3)

      • All sketches featured in this episode were released on DVD before their Broadcast within Big Hair and Beyond with £3.40 of the £4.99 price tag going to the Comic Relief charity. By the time this episode was broadcast, 370,000 copies of the DVD had been sold raising an amazing £1,250,000 for Comic Relief. This special edition DVD is now no longer produced, however this episode can now be found on Disc 2 of the Little Britian Series 2 DVD Set.

      • It was obvious that the Sir Elton John interview wasn't rehearsed as Sir Elton couldn't stop laughing at the innuendo soaked lines from Matt Lucas' Daffyd. Sir Elton gave as good as he got however and one of his responses even set Lucas himself off laughing out of character.

      • The Trisha sketch is filmed on the genuine Trisha set with authentic on screen logos, captions and idents.

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • Comic Relief: Charity

        Comic Relief is the BBCs biggest telethon which runs every two years and raises huge (millions) amounts of cash to improve peoples lives all over the world.

      • Narrator: The Cub Scout movement was founded by Lord Badan Powell who took much of his inspiration from the Jungle Book by Walt Disney.

        Reference to the much loved novel The Jungle Book which of course was actually written by Rudyard Kippling.

      • Vicky Pollard Appears on 'Trisha'.

        Trisha was a long running daytime talk show on ITV. Since this programme was made, 'Trisha' has been moved to rival TV channel Five, given a new name and a new set. ITV replaced 'Trisha' with 'The Springer Show'.
