CHUCKLE VISIONARIES

Your complete guide to every single one of Chucklevision's 292 episodes

10th August 2018

This week we bade farewell to a true titan of entertainment: rest in peace, Barry Chuckle. I have already started seeing badly drawn Facebook memes posted in your honour.

I was genuinely sad to hear that Barry Elliot, known professionally as Barry Chuckle, passed away at the age of 73. Like many, I grew up watching him and his brother Paul fart-arsing around like children, making merriment and being silly for the entertainment of others. What I was surprised to hear was that their flagship show, Chucklevision, ran between 1987 and 2009, racking up 292 episodes. TWO. HUNDRED. AND. NINETY. TWO. EPISODES. That, that, is commitment to a bit. Barry and Paul Chuckle made 292 episodes of quality television off the back of five minutes of material.

Of course, there's no online record of these 292 episodes, given that they began airing before the invention of the internet. Wherefore art thou, Wikipedia plot synopses? Where is the record of Chucklevision canon? How are we supposed to know who Barry and Paul are? What's their back story? What's their whole deal? For the first time, to honour the memory of Barry Chuckle, I give my gift to the world: a full recap of the events of all 292 episodes and 22 years of Chucklevision. You're welcome, world. You're welcome.
