BBC Scotland for CBBC, 17 January 2014 to present
Two teams face a mischievous mix of tongue-in-cheek comedy, off-the-wall questions, nonsensical studio games and slapstick challenges. Each team will be composed of comedians and celebrity guests, with a 'junior sidekick' selected to help too.
Most shows had different combinations of ideas, some physical comedy, some sitting at the desk and shouting out silly answers. One regular round featured Iain Stirling raiding his dressing-up box to give bad impressions of historical figures. Another asked the audience for words so the team could incorporate them into a shaggy dog story about why they're not able to hand in their homework.
Iain declared a winner for each round, the worst performers were given a comedy forfeit by Mr Smash (a PE teacher incapable of doing anything but grunt). The points didn't matter, the programme was a Friday night entertainment and succeeded in this aim.
