It's a sunday afternoon. You're sitting down. What do you want? Some sort of action gun-fight film? A hardcore pornography session? No. You want a nice comforting puppet show, and with Purple Splodge and co, that's what you get. Take a look at the pilot.
Purple: Hey, green and red, I just came back from doing heroine.
Green: That's great, purple.
Red: Yeah, me and green totally support your heroine addiction.
It turns out that Red and Green are hallucinations caused by Purple's drug use and latent schizophrenia.
Purple: I guess that's life.
And that will be broadcast at 4:15 pm on BBC One and then again at 5:30 am on BBC 4. For the clubbing crowd.
