Round The Twist Has Been Voted The Best '90s TV Show In Australia

Round The Twist Has Been Voted The Best '90s TV Show In Australia

If you were a kid growing up in Australia in the 1990s, you had loads of TV shows you would have religiously watched.

Whether it was in the morning before school or that sweet spot in the afternoon that all your cartoons and comedies were on, we truly were blessed with delicious content.

But we thought it would be nice to see what people thought was the best of the best.

LADbible Australia set up a knockout competition that pitted some of the biggest and best TV shows that kids enjoyed during the '90s in Australia against each other. After more than 1,400 votes, the results aren't exactly surprising considering this show is revered across the land.

The legendary programme was about three children and their widowed father who live in a lighthouse in the fictional coastal town of Port Niranda. Over the course of four seasons, they go on bizarre adventures and deal with some pretty weird happenings.

Round the Twist beat Arthur to clinch the top spot, with just 68 votes separating first from second.

It was a valiant effort from the other shows in the competition, with particular mention to Bananas in Pyjamas and Mr Squiggle coming in third and fourth.

The Australian Children's Television Foundation (ACTF), aka legends, decided that this is a time where brilliant Australian TV needs to be appreciated once again.

Dozens of roughly-20 minute episodes from four seasons have already been uploaded so far.

If you've seen a few bits from the show, then you'll know that the plot lines were sometimes a little outrageous.

ACTF's marketing Manager Jenny Buckland admitted Round the Twist really pushed the boundaries for what is acceptable for children's television.

She said: "The scripts were declared 'too rude', 'not for television' and 'outrageous'."

To give you a little refresher on some of the topics, the show dealt with: flatulence, defecation, urination, vomiting, body odour, underwear, birth (one involving a male), death, nudity, incest, genitalia, homosexuality, bestiality and coprophagia aka the consumption of faeces.
