Get Zzzapped! 

20 October 2018

Zzzap! was a children’s comedy programme on CITV created by the Media Merchants for Meridian Broadcasting between 1993 and 2001.

The show was originally aimed at deaf children and featured an 18-foot giant comic coming to life with the adventures of Cuthbert Lilly (Richard Waites), Smart Arty (Neil Buchanan), The Handymen (Sarah Pickthall), Tricky Dicky, Daisy Dare (Deborah McCallum and later Claire Macualay) and Minnie The Mini Magician (Sophie Aldred).

The highly innovative show won a RTS Award in 1996 and was nominated for a BAFTA the same year. The new Zzzap! site is the ultimate source for everything to do with the show from the world of comics to broadcast.

I always want to hear from people who either watched the show growing up or working on it, so please get in touch.
