From Vic & Bob Wiki:

Popadoodledandy is Vic and Bob's take on a pop show, filmed for Channel 4 in December 1992 shortly before they moved to the BBC. The show included music-based sketches and interviews with musicians, all written and performed by Vic and Bob. The pilot was made but was never broadcast and the show was never commissioned as a series.

Vic and Bob wrote the entire show - as the producer Graham Smith said, "they have such enormous confidence in what they come up with, and by and large it works".

Pop stars such as Nick Heyward, Kym Mazelle (who was asked to explain, with the aid of diagrams, how she would transport some meat) and Cud (whose performance was interrupted by Vic and Bob coming on the stage wearing My Little Pony rucksacks) were interviewed for the show in true R&M fashion, with absurd questions befuddling the musicians. It also included a performance by Milan, a 3-piece girl group featuring a teenage Martine McCutcheon, who later punched Vic in the stomach (at Vic's behest).

The song at the end is brilliant
