After the end of Spitting Image there was a gap left for biting political satire.  Five years after came 2DTV.  Lasting five series that ended in 2004.  Next was Headcases, in 2008 that lasted just one series.  What’s the problem? Spitting Image ran for twelve years.

Just when viewers thought that broadcasters had given up came Newzoids.  We were promissed biting satire as seen on Spitting Image and the series even went out in time to spoof the 2015 general election.

To date one series of six episodes has been broadcast with a second scheduled to broadcast later in 2016.


The series uses a mix of the latest CGI techniques alongside some very odd looking puppets, to parody well known public figures from: politicians and sports personalities, to royalty and entertainment.
