Looks Unfamiliar #19: Jonny Morris – What Was Actually In The Dandy?

Mr. Spendy, a rare tie-in Mr. Men book not written by Roger Hargreaves, as discussed by Tim Worthington and writer Jonny Morris in Looks Unfamiliar.

Looks Unfamiliar 19: Jonny Morris

Looks Unfamiliar is a podcast in which writer and occasional broadcaster Tim Worthington talks to a guest about some of the things that they remember that nobody else ever seems to.

Joining Tim this time is writer Jonny Morris, who’s wondering if there is anyone else out there who recalls the BBC Micro Welcome cassette, The Dandy strip Jack Silver, non-canonical Mr. Men book Mr. Spendy, BSB’s The Carmen Ejogo Show, Andrew Sachs sitcom Dead Ernest, and Jesta Giggle by The Barron Knights. Along the way we’ll be finding out how to estimate James Bond’s ‘Biorhythms’, what the second worst ZX Spectrum game was, how many times it’s possible to say ‘Padmasambhava’ in one sentence, and why The Barron Knights should have covered T.V.O.D.. Also, we solve two mystery half-recollections live on air!
