NOEL'S HOUSE PARTY
The highlight of the show was the "Gotcha", in which celebrities became victim to a practical joke. A particular favourite of mine, though, was NTV in which Noel surprised a member of the public in their own home. They would often be watching the show on their own TV and suddenly found that they were the one being watched - it was the startled look on the face of the victim that made this a joy to watch.
There was one character, though, who used to leave me in fits of
laughter, and that was Mr Blobby. As annoying as he was, his fixed grin
and wobbly eyes had me in hysterics for some bizarre reason! In fact, he
became so popular that he managed to knock Meat Loaf off the top of the
British singles chart on 11th December 1993 with the song Mr Blobby.
Noel's House Party was shown every Autumn on BBC1 between November 1991 and March 1999 with 169 episodes during 8 series. By the way, the video clip features a clip from the show when Mr blobby went to meet Hyacinth Bucket on Keeping Up Appearances.
