The Giddy Game Show was an animated quiz show for pre-school children, on CITV made by Yorkshire Television from 1985 to 1987. Scripts were by Marian Lines and Joy Whitby. The first interactive children's television programme. Using technology developed by Peter Schrek, children had a wand to indicate objects on the screen.
The programme was set in a scientific observatory inhabited by Giddy, a friendly alien who flew around on a magic pink pencil, setting simple games and puzzles.
Redvers Kyle provided the voice for Giddy, although the little alien sounded very different from the familiar and distinctive sound of Kyle in his regular role as programme announcer for Yorkshire Television.
