Classic TV

Bod


Here comes Bod… Run! Run for your lives. Leave the children, they can run by themselves. Just run!

Not wanting to lower the tone, but this program is seriously f**ked up! The main character, Bod, is a small bald kid wearing a dress. Let me rephrase that, Bod is a small bald BOY wearing a dress.

I have a very clear memory of this program as a kid. The main reason is that it scared the crap out of me. There were shows like Button Moon which in their own little way were balancing on the edge of reality, but they weren’t scary at all. Bod however, gave me nightmares.


How on earth could they call this a kids program. Bod look just plain evil. At least they could have given him some hair. Bod was Satan himself. Aunt Flo, PC Copper, Frank the Postman and Farmer Barleymow were his evil minions. The episodes seemed innocent enough, just like nightmares. You wake up in a cold sweat and after the panic has settled, you wonder why the dream was so terrifying. Welcome to the living world of Bod, a living nightmare!

I would now describe what the general theme of each episode was, but I can’t. The thing is just so removed from reality that when the ending theme came on I just had to pinch myself and ask the question “what the hell was that all about?”. Bod – It’s not a name, but an acronym to describe some top secret hideous experiment by the government. What it stands for nobody knows, but when acronyms are used, you know it means trouble.
