Buzz and Tell[1] is a 5 minute long CBeebies programme created and produced by Jon Doyle of 'Impossible Kids.' It is a comedy puppet panel show following a format that parodies University Challenge. There are five contestants in each episode. Each show includes a 'missing word round', a 'picture round', a 'numbers round','sound round', and sometimes a 'general knowledge round'. The winner receives a silly prize - Mr Biscuits won a wooden spoon in episode 28.[2]

Characters[edit]

Different contestants appear in different episodes. Mr Biscuits has appeared in every episode alongside Mr Flipstick the quiz master.

  • Walter Flipstick - He is the quizmaster of the show and a walrus.
  • Mr Biscuits - He is an unknown species (he looks like a rabbit, but he has a red nose, like a clown's) who is an expert in the subject of biscuits. He once invented a biscuit that bakes itself.
  • Orange Bernard - He is a banana obsessed orangutan. His greatest achievement is the ability to eat a banana sideways.
  • Ken Koala - He is a very shy koala with an Australian accent.
  • Miss Honkover - She is an exotic showbiz bird.
  • Melanie Wiggles - She is a rabbit who studies carrots.
  • Karl - He is a chinchilla with a large knowledge of nuts. He regularly forgets to press his buzzer and what he was going to say next.
  • Henrietta Peck - She is an enthusiastic, but not very intelligent hen. She is often joined by one of her eggs hatching into a very deep voiced chick part way through the show. She is the only character who didn't appear in Series 2, but she returned in Series 3.
  • Charles Cheese - He is a mouse with a cheese fascination. Also, he is the smallest of all of the contestants.
  • B1N - B1N is a robot made from a pedal bin. B1N frequently answers 'sausage' to any question.
  • Callista Croak - She is a frog who likes to keep fit.
  • Riley Racer - He is a red racing car who likes... well, racing. He has an older brother named Ricky, a blue racing car, who showed up in one episode.
  • Adrian Anteater - He is a clumsy anteater who loves eating ants and talks with a German accent. He often presses his buzzer by accident.
  • Stem and Petal - They are mischievous twin flowers who find it very hard to get along. One episode showed Stem trying to play the quiz without Petal, until the end.
  • Ninjanic - She is a human ninja who likes to keep quiet and talks in a whispered voice.
  • DJ Flappy - He is a fruit bat who writes and produces music.
