The Mighty Boosh

TV Show • 2004 • Comedy  

Report
The Mighty Boosh is a British comedy television show created by Julian Barratt, Noel Fielding and others. The Mighty Boosh is a comic fantasy containing humour and pop-culture references. Episodes often featured elaborate musical numbers in different genres, such as electro, heavy metal, funk, and rap. The show has been known for popularising a style called "crimping"; short a cappella songs which are present throughout all three series. Julian Barratt wrote the music within the show, and performs it with Noel Fielding. Fielding also designed many of the show's graphics and artwork. The TV series has many animated sequences, puppets and special effects. Barratt has said that he approached Fielding with the idea of doing a show like The Goodies, as if it were a complete "world" rather than simply a sketch show. Barratt and Fielding play many of the recurring and one-off characters themselves, with other characters being played by other Boosh members Rich Fulcher, Dave Brown, and Michael Fielding.
This tv show contains 19 potentially triggering events.

this is a very fantastical show, much of it is very unrealistic and pretty wild. not in a scary way though, in more of an imaginative way. definitely worth watching, it is a firm favourite of mine. just wonderful <3

vince and howard both face situations where they might die but never do, never because of their sexualities (howard is ambigously bi and vince is overtly bi)

there is a scene where it’s suggested that Howard has been bumming a fox however nothing is actually shown or confirmed.

in S1 E2, Vince goes on a date with a panda but nothing really comes of it.
