This is a picture of the box for the 'Round the Bend' spinoff game for the ZX Spectrum, featuring all of our favourite puppets from the show.

Clockwise from Top Right: Doc Croc, Vaudeville Vince Vermin, Jemima Wellington-Green and Louschetti Brouschetti (aka Lou Brush).

In terms of Round the Bend memorabilia, this is probably one of the best purchases ever... I spotted it in a mail order catalogue, and send off for it. A few days later, I got my dusty old ZX Spectrum down from the attic and waited the obligatory 15 minutes for the game to load, but I was slightly disappointed as the game turns out to be one of the hardest things I've ever tried to play!

There was no need to be too down-hearted however, as with the game came a A3 'Doc Croc' poster and the instruction manual was littered with some cartoons that were regularly featured in the show.

I've just remembered how Doc Croc used to whack Vince across the face with his tail. Hehe.. memories!
