Hello, Cheeky!

From Academic Kids

Hello, Cheeky! was a series broadcast on BBC Radio 2 between 1973 and 1979. It was written and performed by Barry Cryer, John Junkin, and Tim Brooke-Taylor, and quickly gained a reputation of containing absolutely terrible jokes and puns. Two random examples of jokes are, "I once spent an evening with seven Benedictines. What Happened? I drank them all and fell over" and, "Enoch Powell sent me a draught board for Christmas. Trouble is, all the squares are white." Given the quality of a lot of the material, the fact that it ran for 64 episodes could be surprising.

There were also two Christmas specials: Hello Cheeky! Hello Christmas! and the pantomime-style Cheeky Whittington and his Magic Ballpoint

It has been produced by David Hatch, Richard Willcox, and Bob Oliver Rogers.

On 6 April 1975, "The Least Worst of Hello Cheeky" was recorded before a live audience in the Paris Studio. It was produced by Bob Rogers, with music by the Denis King Trio. From the two hour show, 45 minutes was released on vinyl. Two 30 minute shows containing material from this recording session were broadcast on 25 January and 1 February 1976.

Hello, Cheeky! transferred to Yorkshire Television in 1976 with the same writing and performing team with Len Lurcuck as producer and Duncan Wood as executive producer.

The television first series, containing eight episodes, was broadcast between 19 January and 22 March 1976. The second series, containing five episodes, was broadcast between 26 May and 23 June of the same year.

The TV series was generally considered a flop as there was no attempt to make the material more visual for television.
