How To Be A Little S*d (BBC-1 1995, Rik Mayall, Harriet Thorpe)



Comedy series How To Be A Little S*d detailed episodes in the life of a couple coping with a new baby. The twist being that the little baby was voiced by Rik Mayall.

Writer Simon Brett based the series on his own book of the same name and despite the obvious exaggeration for comedic effect many new parents would have found plenty to identity with.
