...FUNNIEST THINGS
ANIMALS DO THE FUNNIEST THINGS 1
MICHAEL BARRYMORE presents Animals Do The Funniest Things, a clip based programme of animals doing funny and crazy things. We've all enjoyed the antics of the TV Chimps on the tea commercials for years now tune into this unique new special as Britain's top male entertainer teams up with talking chimpanzee AARON ST JOHN SMYTHE. Together, this unlikely double act look at the hilarious out-takes, bloopers and real life situations that prove that Animals Do The Funniest Things. And to get viewers in the mood for a spot of monkey business, there's also the world's first all-chimp gameshow, starring uppercrust Aaron, Essex girl chimp Donna and Scouser Wayne. The simian gameshow panellists have adopted the very best - and very worst - of human habits, developing their own very distinctive personalities which they put to good use. Not that Michael slips up as they deliver a volley of verbal banana-skins, but the chimps almost have the last laugh as they become the first contestants nearly to achieve the impossible by rendering Michael speechless. Although viewers won't spot the difference, the world's first chimp gameshow is a masterpiece of modern technology - because Michael was not allowed in the studio at the same time as the animals for safety reasons. LWT's Controller of Entertainment NIGEL LYTHGOE, who produced the one-hour show, said: "Chimps are notoriously short-tempered and, whilst we had an army of top animal trainers on hand at all times, we could not take any risks with Michael.
