Transmission Impossible With Ed and Oucho was a CBBC show starring Ed Petrie and Oucho T. Cactus. Filmed at Pinewood Studios,[1] it first aired on 16 May 2009 and was shown every Saturday morning on BBC Two and Sunday morning on the CBBC Channel for its run of 26 episodes. It was one of the 'Summer Replacement' shows filling in for the absence of TMi in 2009, along with Basil's Swap Shop.

The premise involved Ed and Oucho "hacking" into your television from their blimp, replacing The Krazey, Krazey, Krazey, Krazey, Krazey, Krazey, Krazey Show with Kaptain Krazey and Nigel Smith intended to be on air. Kaptain Krazey was a puppet pirate that only says "ooh aar" whilst Nigel Smith was Ed Petrie in a blonde wig.

Each Saturday episode, their blimp loses altitude, and one by one their four stowaways have to be pushed off. The stowaways play games, e.g. "Oucho's lossoli (Lovely) quiz", to determine who gets pushed off and whether or not they are awarded a parachute.

Transmission Impossible with Ed and Oucho ended on 9 August 2009 to allow Ed and Oucho to film Series 2 of Excellent Inventions.
