round the twist is a very old show

Round the Twist is notable for having pushed the boundaries of what is acceptable for children's television, to the extent that the Australian Children's Television Foundation had difficulty finding a distributor for it: according to the ACTF's marketing Manager Jenny Buckland, "the scripts were declared 'too rude', 'not for television' and 'outrageous'".

you can say that again

@lynnesbian a lot of productions back then were dark. Ellie and Jools had a dead girl down a well. Mirror Mirror had toxic was sprayed on kids. The Miraculous Mellops straight up had a corny bunch of aliens that fuckin ate people.
