The Shiny Show is a British children's television programme, broadcast by CBeebies, BBC Two and Tiny JUNIORtoon, that was produced by Open Mind Productions. It was first screened in 2002 and was aimed at children between the ages of two and seven. Each show featured a quiz with six questions, based around different subjects, and featured three star characters: Tigs the Cat, Mukka the Monkey and Dogsby the Dog.

Characters[edit]

Tigs[edit]

Tigs is an orange cat, who is often portrayed as confident and big headed. She is extremely lively and always gets the starring role in the short plays or poems the group act out in between rounds. She has a lucky object called Mr Cheese - a plastic lump of cheese that squeaks when it is squeezed.

Mukka[edit]

Mukka is an extremely hyperactive purple monkey. He has a lucky object called Fluffy Stuff and a pet lump called Lumpy.

Dogsby[edit]

Dogsby is the most sensible member of the group, and usually stays quiet and calm in most circumstances. Dogsby's lucky object is a purple and yellow hat named Lucky Hat, which Dogsby never wears because if he wears it he 'might get too lucky!'

The Alarmorama[edit]

The Alarmorama is a machine situated on one of the walls in the living room. It has many functions, including:

  • Choosing the 'quizzer' - the person who asks the questions for that particular edition of the show
  • Playing the quizzer's song
  • Indicating the starts of rounds
  • Handing out the 'Shinies' and the Super Shiny to the viewers at home
  • Indicating the end of the show.

Overview[edit]

There are three rounds in the quiz, each with a video the contestants watch before answering the two questions. The aim of the game is to answer as many questions right as possible, and beat the other player. For each question you get right you can 'give yourself a shiny'. The person who answers the most questions correctly wins the Super Shiny.

In between the three rounds, the characters act out a story or play loosely based around the theme of the videos the quiz is based upon. Some of the dialogue in these sequences carries on at two levels, which makes The Shiny Show one of CBeebies' more entertaining shows for parents.
