Dick And Dom Say In Da Bungalow Couldn't Get Made Today

Dick and Dom have said they don't believe In Da Bungalow could get made today.

The comedy duo recently announced a TV comeback with new adult gameshow Cash From Chaos, but say, looking back, that they don't think their old series would be accepted nowadays.

Speaking to the Mirror about their iconic children's series, which aired between 2002 and 2006, they said some of their stunts, which included games like Baldy Slap Heads, just wouldn't get the green light these days.

Dom Wood, 43, said: "We got people to hold puppies, which would lick dog food off vases.

"It was very funny. The dogs were happy, but nowadays that just would not be allowed."


While Dick McCourt, 45, added: "The rulebook since then has got bigger."

Speaking to LADbible previously, Dick and Dom said they would actually consider bringing In Da Bungalow back.

Dom explained, however, that it would depend on one condition, saying: "I think if it was part of something else, like some channels they have charities, and someone wanted us to do it for a good cause, then I think we would consider it.

"So if there was a reason for doing it, then I think we would probably consider it."

He added: "But if it was just us doing it for the sake of it, then probably not."


But based on what they've said now, it would be a very different show.

They aren't the only ones to look back at their works and see it in a different light today, though.

Earlier this year, Ricky Gervais claimed The Office would be 'cancelled' if it came out now.

As it happens, the sitcom was released 20 years ago this year - feel old? - and is still regarded as one of the finest British comedies of all time.


The show was a launchpad for Gervais' career and was remade in countries across the globe, but Gervais thinks a lot has changed over the past two decades.

"I mean, now it would be cancelled," he told the BBC.

"I'm looking forward to when they pick out one thing and try to cancel it.

"Someone said they might try to cancel it one day, and I say, 'Good, let them cancel it. I've been paid!'"
