Fans Can't Believe ChuckleVision Got Away With This Joke

Fans of kids TV have been shocked recently after a slightly rude joke from children's favourite ChuckleVision resurfaced. Check out the joke for yourself below, did you pick up on that at the time?


In the short sketch, it seems as if Paul and Barry Chuckle somehow managed to get themselves in charge of a hotel - as many of the episodes seem to go - and are taking a booking from an older gent.

He tells them: "I'd like a room please,"

Paul responds: "What do you think this is, a hotel?"

Very good.

Then, the man comes back: "I'm an astronomer, you see. I'm hoping to sneak a look at Uranus later."

Well, we could all see that coming before the end of the sentence, couldn't we?

Obviously, it's a long-standing tradition for kids TV shows to occasionally slip in a joke for the adults.

After all, it will almost certainly fly right over the heads of the younger viewers, whilst also remaining inoffensive enough.

There's no way that the writers of the show didn't know what they were up to here, though.

The clip resurfaced after it was shared on TikTok by @craig_dane, who captioned his video: "How did ChuckleVision get away with this?"

One person responded: "Because it's not even remotely offensive or edgy?"

Whilst that's true, we know what they're trying to do.

Another person - who is obviously a big fan of Paul and Barry's work - commented: "This is why ChuckleVision will always be the best and most superior programme ever made."

Yup, that's right. Step aside The Wire, Breaking Bad, and The Sopranos, ChuckleVision is well clear of all those pathetic attempts at television.

Naturally, it has sparked the usual strawman argument about how 'you' wouldn't be able to get away with this sort of thing nowadays, despite 'this sort of thing' happening all of the time nowadays.

In fact, probably more so.

Anyway, most people are able to just celebrate it for the excellent piece of double entendre that it is.

A third person hit the nail on the head, writing: "They did that for the adults stuck watching it with the kids so they can have a laugh too.

"Disney does this as well. Parents need entertaining too!"

Never were truer words spoken.

It seems as if enough people have enjoyed this blast from the past, as the video has been liked more than 23,000 times and has received hundreds of comments.
