The Kenny Everett Television Show was an often surreal sketch series shown on BBC1 in the United Kingdom. When Kenny Everett moved to the BBC from ITV, some new characters for this show were created due to disputes with the previous television station, Thames Television. Thames argued that they owned the rights to the characters, not Kenny. Therefore new characters, such as Cupid Stunt were invented. Some characters were very similar to previous ones, for example the similarities between Sid Snott and Gizzard Puke.
The show was a variety of short sketches and also starred Cleo Rocos.
