...Should damn well release a CD!

biddysmama Tue 26-Jul-11 11:24:43

yanbu i love their songs!

ProcrastinatorGeneral Tue 26-Jul-11 11:26:38

They only have audiobooks, and DVDs, but we want the songs!

Also, is it wrong to have a bit of a thing for the dude who 'does' Dick Turpin? blush

CarrieOakey Tue 26-Jul-11 11:27:39

It's bloody brilliant, my second fav kids programme. My first being Diddy Dick and Dom blush

i love it to. i was crying laughing at the Pachacuti Incan song.

I know one of the actors (he used to have a crush on me at college) and he is still in touch with a friend.

Would IBU to get back in touch with him so i can ask him all about the series?

molepom Tue 26-Jul-11 11:30:42

I want the songs too.

My favorite has to be Charles the Second. Had me laughing all the way through no matter how many times I've seen it.

If you're really desperate or have lots of spare time you could always try:

They are doing a Horrible Histories Prom at the Albert Hall this Saturday . . .
more details here

I love the songs! I was looking them up on iTunes the other week to see if they were on there but sadly no. Pachacuti and Literally are my favourites. I really fancy the actor that plays Pachacuti grin

Maybe we should start a campaign to get them released!

CarrieOakey Tue 26-Jul-11 11:39:54

I've just double checked itunes too. They definitely need to bring out a cd. It would be on all the time in our car!!

ProcrastinatorGeneral Tue 26-Jul-11 11:40:05

Tickets for the prom sold out pretty much instantlysad

I'm using an iPad so can't really use audio capture eithersad

As for my favourite? Has to be Highwaymangrin

CarrieOakey Tue 26-Jul-11 11:40:13

Would do we write to?

housemum Tue 26-Jul-11 11:40:27

The songs just stick in your head, loved the boy band King Georges and Spartan High School Musical. 8yo DD2 lives the programme, and 18yo DD1 watches it too (we called it revision for A level ancient history!)

ProcrastinatorGeneral Tue 26-Jul-11 11:42:35

Band geek, check out the new series, he is dick Turpin too. I might have recorded that section of the showblush

CarrieOakey Tue 26-Jul-11 11:43:22

who do we write to? blush

piprabbit Tue 26-Jul-11 11:44:10

The songs are all on the CBBC website. You can download the lyrics too - so you can sing along grin.

Here then click on Watch Clips.

I'm not picky - I'd snog any/all of them.

bandgeek Tue 26-Jul-11 11:49:02

Ooh I'll have to have a look at Dick Turpin!

Would it be CBBC? I'll have to have a wee look smile

CarrieOakey Tue 26-Jul-11 11:51:06

I want to download them onto my ipod though so we can singalong in the car!!

piprabbit Tue 26-Jul-11 11:52:32

Yes - it's on CBBC (not that I spend too much of my time on there, oh no. I haven't watched all the behind the scenes stuff either blush).

DMCWelshCakes Tue 26-Jul-11 11:56:56

YANBU. I'd buy it and DiddyDragon & DiddyCakes are far too young to appreciate it.

The Pachacuti song actually gave me rib ache I laughed so hard. Matthew Baynton is a comedy genius. grin

<cuts to the chase>

look at their big balls in the dance masterclass

ProcrastinatorGeneral Tue 26-Jul-11 12:06:38

Did anybody see the Stephen Fry episode? I may have had a suffusion of fangirl squeeingsmile

ProcrastinatorGeneral Tue 26-Jul-11 12:09:19

I sense a MN campaign brewing. I love it when a campaign comes together!

Bramshott Tue 26-Jul-11 12:09:42

The seated tickets for Sat are all sold out, but there are still 1000 promming tickets for sale on the day. If we weren't off on holiday the following day I'd definitely be tempted to go.

We don't even have kids and me and DH love horrible histories! blush
