The Wonder Games (Nic Doodson Productions)

By | Published on Monday 15 August 2022

Cbeebies ledge Maddie Moat and trusty ‘Let’s Go Live’ buddy Greg Foot bring us an hour of science as game show. Long-range shooting hats from people’s heads with pulses of air, zip-slide teddy races and a locally themed adaptation of the Mentos/fizzy drink trick (Go on, then – it works with Irn Bru!) All followed by a lip-reading round which, whilst weirdly ill-suited to the room, is still entertaining for the apparently genuine corpsing it prompts among our presenters. Anyway, all good madcap fun, among which some kernels of education will lodge themselves in the brains of your younglings. Mine, for instance, can’t stop telling people how frequently a sloth does a poo….

Underbelly George Square, run ended.
