Trivia: Tweenies

  • Banned Episode: The Jimmy Savile scandal has rendered "Favourite Songs"- an episode featuring a parody of Top of the Pops- banned. Bizarrely, it missed the initial cull on Savile-related material- see Too Soon below.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Jake is voiced by beloved children's entertainer Justin Fletcher — or Mr. Tumble as you would probably know him.
  • Too Soon: The BBC were forced to apologise after a January 2013 rerun of a 2001 episode that featured a spoof of Top of the Pops and Max dressed as its most famous host, Jimmy Savile...as the rerun came just days after the official police report on Savile's crimes (he was a real life Depraved Kids' Show Host who allegedly used his fame and reputation to molest hundreds of underage girls and boys).
