Spitting Image, Christmas Special, 1989
Not to be outdone by other TV shows Spitting Image had it’s fair share of Christmas Specials.
In true Spitting Image tradition it wasn’t just the news that came in for some festive satire but the festive season itself’
We picked this 1989 edition for it’s brilliantly funny but strangely familiar take on the festive season.
The festive season is upon us and the Spitting Image team are in fine form.
As well as a satirical look at all things festive there are some familiar faces getting the Spitting Image treatment. These include: Margaret Thatcher and her cabinet, the Royal Family, Dennis Nordan, Kenneth Clarke from when he was Health Secretary.
Created By: Peter Fluck, Roger Law and Martin Lambie-Nairn
