Bully's Special Prize
Super, smashing, great
Great news! The return to terrestial TV of my older brother, Bully. I don't have that many memories of Bully, as he was always away mugging up on his spelling. He used to read dictionaries. Seriously, you try to turn the page of a dictionary with a hoof. It's hard work. Bully loved the high life. He even snared a couple of Speedboats when the contestants were uncommonly stupid. When Jim Bowen was cryogenically frozen, Bully disappeared with little more than his Bus Fare Home. However, Bullseye is coming back and have tracked down Bully. Initially, I didn't know how they tracked Bully and then I realised he was still waiting for the bus. Apparently, some tory guy in a pinstripe suit and accompanied by Peter Stringfellow, drove past in a vintage Routemaster, but totally ignored Bully's desperate hailing.
Follow this awesome link to get in the mood for the rebirth of Bullseye.
Apparently the producers had done a deal with a speedboat muanfacturer, so often they had 2 prizes behind Bully. The speedboat if you won and (probably ) a car if you were just seeing what you could have won.
A truly magical show. What i could never work out was why the "non-darts" players couldn't really play darts (although predictably they could often get higher scores with their scatter gun approach than the carefully honed talents of the amateur arrow chuckers)
