'The Young Ones' 25th anniversary boxset will be a 3 disc set containing all episodes from both series and a disc dedicated to all the extras.

Its fair to say that when The Young Ones first blasted onto television screens, thered never been anything quite like it. Yet the manic adventures of Rik, Neil, Vyvyan and Mike didnt take long to gain an audience, and over 25 years later, the programme still enjoys a well-deserved cult-following.
Both series of The Young Ones are grouped together in this special DVD set, and theres plenty to enjoy. In among the violence, the anarchic comedy, and the wonderful childishness of it all, are many, many belly laughs. How about when The Young Ones represented Scumbag College on University Challenge, for instance? Or Alexei Sayles Balowski family? Or the occasional break so a band could be worked in to play a song?

The influence of The Young Ones has been notable since it was first broadcast, not least in the spawning of its sequel-of-sorts, Bottom. Yet the two series here prove to be far more than an opportunity to see where a particular strand of comedy really began to gather pace. Instead, they still provide many bellies full of laughs, and its arguable that, in spite of the imitators it spawned, nothing has come close to The Young Ones since. And this DVD collection more than proves the point.

DVD Description
A mad, helter-skelter, rude, awesomely violent, unpredictable, swaggering, staggering, joyously infantile, exhilarating steamroller of a sitcom, The Young Ones provided the breakthrough for the new generation of aggressive and forthright 'alternative' comedians.

Join Rik, Vyv, Neil and Mike in their crazy and surreal comedy adventures!

Beore anyone points out that you can buy the single series cheaper, I wish to point out that "you can but the single series cheaper". But you will be getting (badly) cut episodes and no disc of extras.

More Rik and Ade - Cool!

I bought the American Version of theSet that is the same as this - not checked for edits, but pivotal TV in the early 80's.

How many BumBurps was it by Toxteh O'Grady?:oops:

Got this 6 months ago at £17.99

Wicked series, worth getting if you remember the series.

It wasn't the amount of bottom burps - it was the stupidest!

Anyone know if the original TV series of Whoops Apocalypse ever made it to DVD?

The not so good film did:

Before it kicks off...


MIKE: [reads the book's title] "The Daily Mirror Book of Facts: Did You … MIKE: [reads the book's title] "The Daily Mirror Book of Facts: Did You Know".NEIL: Do you think that's where they get the questions from?[Neil starts reading the book with great interest]"The world's record for stuffing marshmallows up one single nostril..."VYVYAN: Ehhh, "Six-hundred and four, Toxteth O'Grady, U.S.A."NEIL: Yeah, right! "World's stickiest bogey?"VYVYAN: Ha! Tried to fool me. That's Toxteth again!RICK: The World's Stupidest Bottom-Burp: Vyvyan, Britain!NEIL: It says "Rick" here, actually.RICK: Give me that! [Rick grabs the book]




If I recall correctly, there's a song missing from ep 2 of S2 (Cash) - the Subterranean Homesick Blues medley with Squeeze. I assume due to rights issues, Bob Dylan, etc, or something.

I'm pretty sure that's missing from my R1 set but not sure if it's the same on this or other editions.

amazing comedy, voted hot.

It's a one-off band called Ken Bishop's Nice Twelve, featuring Jools Holland, Chris Difford and Stewart Copeland, amongst others.

It's definitely on the 25th Anniversary version.

But what about those of us that have got a video?

Buy this boxset and them swap it with me for my VHS boxsets ;-)

Watching this again after many years I thought that they had aged badly. Just my opinion. Still a good deal.

You beat me to it there Nivag.

Don't forget to ensure the video is kept clean!

Ensure you don't chop up your machine with an axe, put all the pieces into a plastic bag and flush them down the toilet.

Voted Hot Hot Hot!
