13 x 50 minute episodes

A woefully vacuous variety show from Australia’s Network Ten.

Seemingly commissioned by an office boy while the bosses were on holiday, the show apparently used scripts collected from waste baskets consisting of rejected jokes from Kingswood CountryThe Aunty Jack Show and The Norman Gunston Show.

The producers of Ratbags further improved on these jokes by doing away with the punchlines . . .

Gorgeous Micki Gardener appeared as ‘Superperson’ (pictured at right) but even her superpowers and super sexy looks couldn’t save the show.
