Kids TV today just isn’t the same as what it used to be! For ’90s and ’00s children, there was nothing more exciting than coming home from school, throwing your bag down the side of the sofa, and settling down to CBBC or CITV (depending on your preference)! You all wanted to be a contestant on these 8 TV shows, and there’s no way you can possibly deny it!
8. 1. Get Your Own Back (1991-2004)
Is there anything more satisfying to a child than making their parent wear silly costumes, fumble through obstacle courses, and spin around mercilessly on a Velcro wheel while tennis balls are pummeled at their face? We didn’t think so! Get Your Own Back was a programme for all of the kids who have ever been sent to bed early or didn’t get dessert for not eating their Brussels sprouts! The best part was the final game, where the contestant gets to pull a lever, sending their mum or dad into a sticky pool of gunge.
Catchphrase: “What do we do?…CRANK THEM UP!”
