Pinky and Perky are a pair of lovable twin piglets who have just been given their big break in television - their own live TV show full of crazy stunts, wild games, anarchic cartoons and top celebrity guests. Their show is loud, messy and frequently out of control, which makes it a huge hit with the kids at home - and very unpopular with some of the grownups at the TV station! Episode one: Pup Idol - Tuesday August 11 at 4:10pm, ABC1 Pinky and Perky arrive at PPCTV to the sound of screaming fans who are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Jason Jasons - a mega pop star booked to appear on their show. But when he arrives and starts making demands, Pinky and Perky are less than impressed. However, when Jason's top celebrity agent Simon Cow promises Perky the chance of a glittering music career, he is instantly won over, but Pinky smells a rat! Pinky's suspicions turn out to be well-founded, but before he can reveal Jason's dark secret, he has to contend with Simon Cow's devious double-crossing tactics. Episode two: The Menacing Phantom - Wednesday August 12 at 4:10pm, ABC1 TV boss and the piglets' uncle, Sir Percival, is out of town and has requested a spooky Halloween special while he's away. Top rock band Bat Sabbath are due to appear on the show and lead singer Batty Belagosi is enjoying playing pranks on a terrified Perky. Meanwhile, Pinky is busy practising drawing monsters and when he gets a visit from cartoon whiz Barbara Hannah announcing she's his biggest fan, he's over the moon! But just as Perky thinks he's managed to escape his troublesome tormentor, he encounters an even creepier character - a frightening figure who calls himself 'The Phantom' and who seems intent on destroying The Pinky and Perky Show!
