Spitting Image puppets shown for first time

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

Spitting Image has revealed its Prince Andrew, Boris Johnson and Dominic Cummings puppets ahead of the show's return.

The prime minister's puppet has a mass of spiky blonde hair, while his key adviser, Mr Cummings, is seen in his trademark hoodie with a flamboyant silver collar.

A glum-looking Duke of York is dressed in a tartan coat complete with paisley neckerchief.

The satirical series, which in its prime attracted 15 million viewers and ran for 18 seasons between 1984 and 1996, is back later this year on BritBox, the streaming service launched by the BBC and ITV.

L.A.T.1961

"The new version will be produced by production company Avalon. Roger Law, co-creator of the original, is on board as executive producer.

He has previously promised the new Spitting Image will be "more outrageous, audacious and salacious than the previous incarnation." BBC

I guess this is code for biased. ;)

The bbc article seems a bit confused by the dates, it claims - "Prime ministers  Labour's Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, as well as Conservatives David Cameron and Theresa May - escaped the experience of being regularly parodied on the show during their time in No 10." 

Well yes they would have as Spitting Image finished in 1996. 

Back in the day -

Considering one of Prince Andrews accusations is he molested women with a spitting image puppet of himself, it will be interesting to see how they parody him, or will it all be in poor taste while he is under a very dark umbrella of child sex trafficking , associating with child sex traffickers and being removed from all Royal duties. 


I can remember  the original tv show and Prince Andrews puppet once said Sarah Ferguson would ' root a rat running if she could keep up pace ' .
