Get Your Own Back was a British children's game show that was broadcast on CBBC during the 1990's. Dave and the audience always showed bias against the grown-up by booing the oppressed as much as possible. Throughout every series the final round was called the "Gunk Dunk", where the losing adult was always thrown into a pool of colourful, messy gunge. Get Your Own Back, and check out Get Your Own Back on Wikipedia, Youtube, Google News, Google Books, and Twitter on Digplanet. Get Your Own Back was a British children's game show, which ran from 26 September 1991 to 1 January 2004. This is the only series with 3 teams (red, blue and green), and it was also the only series with a green team.
This was the last of the fairground themed series, as well as the last season with a red team. This series still had two teams, but the colours were now yellow and blue and the kids (and the adults) now had the option to wear shorts or trousers instead of just trousers previously. In later series' the child was sat over the gunk dunk in a special chair with levers to the side of the adult.
Other episodes would have the child automatically win a prize instead of having to select the correct lever. Lisa Brockwell was introduced as a co-host, with the series still having the yellow and blue teams. Dave would ask the children some questions on the buzzer and every question that was answered correctly allowed the child to move their adult up one notch. Also, because both teams played the Gunk Dunk, the double points round was dropped, with the exception of some games where point values were worth double than usual.
In early playings, batteries were 20 points each, and the adults were harnessed into bungee cords when they threw the gunge. The inflatable maze used in this game was also used on Run The Risk, Another CBBC game show which aired during Get Your Own Back's early years. Both times where Dave himself got gunged were entirely set-up to add to the comedy of the scene, and both times were guest-hosted by celebrities that previously went through the Gunk Dunk. For a while in the 1990s, Dave Benson Phillips felt the need to live a double life, a Jekyll-and-Hyde existence. GYOB mutated through a few different formats (variable numbers of teams, selection of end games) but the principle has remained constant throughout. At the end of the show, the child who has gained most points has earned the right to Get Their Own Back upon their parentrelativeteacherceleb by dunking them into a 2'6" deep pool of colourful gunge (total immersions usual) - and an extra shower from above followed in most cases.
Peter Simon appearing on every single celeb special and randomly tripping up and falling into the gunge - even if he wasn't scheduled to be a contestant! Dave also regularly referred to the adults' forthcoming gungebath as "a drop in the plop" and probably a number of other things in addition. The show was sent lots of (presumably unsolicited) ideas for games by children - and why not? Christopher Smith, who played Robert Sugden in Emmerdale between 1989 and 2001, appeared as a contestant in 1993 (when he was eight years old) and managed to gunge the producer of Emmerdale at the time, Morag Bain.
A live version of the programme, with a portable gunge booth, was performed during the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe, with Dave Benson Phillips reviving his hosting duties. These 'crimes' were usually trivial, such as singing badly or asking the child to tidy their room. Once was in a Christmas special in 1996, hosted by Peter Simon and another was in another Christmas special in 1998 where Kirsten O'Brien and Mr. It has been presented throughout by Dave Benson Phillips with the addition of Lisa Brockwell as a co-host from 2001 to the programme's end in 2004. On one occasion, however, Dave disqualified a girl when she stepped out of the way, avoiding the gunge, so the adult got the trophy instead (although still being gunged, because "children are not permitted without a grown-up").
Brain Box was played again as the first round, with the Chumps Challenge round always being an obstacle race. It was also the first series where the child played to score points rather than prevent the grown up from doing so, and the teams were red and blue. However, many parents complained of their children copying this act, and it was edited out of the remaining episodes. Five rounds were played before the Gunk Dunk, with round 5 usually being a double points round. In these episodes the kid had the opportunity to win prizes; pulling the right lever meant the child won the prize, but pulling the wrong lever resulted in gunge being released over head - not the child falling into the gunk dunk like in previous series. She gave the rules of the game and the score updates, and occasionally asked contest questions. The first child who got their adult to the fifth and highest notch got the chance to gunge their adult by pulling a lever next to them.
Each game has a time limit that uses different horns to mark the start and end of each game.
The children have 60 seconds to toss items in their messy bedrooms through the walls, while the adults on the other sides of the wall have to throw the items back. The child is armed with a catapult and sits in a chair the child has to launch the balls at the wall try to knock off the yellow bricks while the adult has to try and defend the balls whilst wearing giant hand gloves in style of a goalkeeper Ten points for each yellow brick was knocked off. The adult, who is hanging from the ceiling on a bungee cord, is dressed as an astronaut with some styrofoam planets attached to their spacesuit. The kid grabs a piece of breakfast meat(bacon, sausage or eggs) and takes it through an inflatable path. The adults are dressed as kings or queens upon their thrones and throw splosh at the kids whilst the two children brave the obstacle course and the splosh to grab nuggets. The child and adult are both positioned in airplane props (the child's plane comes with a propeller). The child and adult are strapped to harnesses at opposite ends of an inflatable setup with a wall in the middle.
The adult is strapped to a wheel with blue and yellow sections on it, in the style of a circus knife-throwing act, and spins counterclockwise whilst the wheel itself spins clockwise.
The adult is placed inside a costume resembling a giant baby, and has to run around the ring so that the child has it more difficult, whilst the child has to run around with various food items (burger, fries, peas, and carrots) scoring 10 points per item that stays in the mouth. The two children maneuver their way around a four-section inflatable pool filled with gunge and try to place blue and yellow hoops around the center pole whilst the adults have to throw gunge on the kids to slow them down using leaky colanders.
The adult is dressed up as a snowman and has to block the progress of the child, who has to run in and out of an igloo while taking fish fingers out of the igloo and putting them in a frying pan. The child takes pieces of plastic French toast (which Dave always refers to as "toasty soldiers" or "egg soldiers") and has to crawl through a series of gates that resembled a giant toast rack, while the adult, dressed as a chef (and has both legs bound together by a band commonly used for three-legged races) has to place pieces of toast on the gates to slow the child down.
The two children run into a tower and collect money bag balloons (balloons with a pound sign on them), and place them into their barrels.

The adults jump on circular dots in the center of their course while the children jump on other dots placed around the circular dots, all on an inflatable obstacle course.
The adults are dressed in chicken costumes and have to defend gold eggs which the children try to steal and place in a nest at the opposite end of the inflatable obstacle course, divided into four sections and filled with green and red balls commonly seen in play equipment in places such as McDonald's. Dave asked the adults questions on the buzzer, and each time an adult buzzed in with the correct answer, it deducted 10 points from the child's cumulative score. Dave asked the adults questions previously asked to the children, either on general knowledge or on their personal lives. If the two scores were tied at the end of regulation, Dave asked each child to draw a numbered ball from "Benson's Bag," numbered from one to ten.
The kids have a bucket of gunge each and take it down an inflatable obstacle course before pouring it into the respective team bucket. The kid, dressed as a security guard, has to place valuable items into a safe while the adult, dressed as a burglar with their legs tied by a chain and ball, has to take away any unclaimed items and place it into their bag. The kids, who were dressed as eskimos, ran around an inflatable iceberg collecting fish in their color and dropping it in their assigned nets. The kid, dressed as a pirate, is on an inflatable ship with a treasure chest full of coins and three pockets on each end of the ship. The two adults, dressed as lab assistants, crank handles as fast as they can to make it harder for the children to grab test tubes filled with blue, yellow, and red gunge.
The adult is dressed in a giant spider costume and hangs above a web with flies attached to it. The adults are dressed as cavepeople and use inflatable clubs to bonk the heads of their children gently whilst the children maneuver up and down an obstacle course shaped like a dinosaur to grab eggs. The adult is placed inside a costume resembling a large bird, and has to run around the ring so that the child has it more difficult, whilst the child has to run around with various items (bugs, worms, and maggots) scoring 10 points per item that stays in the beak. The children, dressed as waiters in a diner, deliver trays with plastic milkshakes from one table to another one through a diner setting, whilst the adults, dressed as short-order cooks, throw plastic food items at the children. The child has to grab framed pictures of gold records and stick them on a wall that vibrates depending on how loud their adult sings a songs currently on the pop charts (usually a song by a boy band or similar type of act).
The child is the penalty kicker while the adult is the goalkeeper (dressed up with "comedy boots" and "comedy gloves" as Lisa put it). The adults are dressed as cherry cupcakes containing cherries that the children have to grab and place in their baskets. The child runs across a road (actually a reversing treadmill) powered by their adult pedaling on an exercise bike as fast as they can, while carrying pieces of a bicycle.
This was played strictly for fun with the adults and audience, and did not have an effect on scoring as it was used as a filler.
The first time saw Peter Simon guest-hosting, where the child participating wanted to get her own back on Dave for all the adults he had sent through the Gunk Dunk. By day, Nice Dave Benson was an utterly trustworthy father figure on Playdays; by night, Naughty Dave Benson was and still is the most unpredictable, crazy gungemeister since Stu Francis, (with the possible exception of Noel Edmonds).
In this tweak to the format, the child would have to bring along a prized possession, and if they were beaten in one of the games by their adult team mate, their possession would be placed into the furnace and duly burnt. It has been presented throughout by Dave Benson Phillips with the addition of Lisa Brockwell as a co-host from 2001 to the programme's end in 2003.
Occasionally some 'crimes' were memorable, such as one boy's uncle who wound up the boy's whole family by pranking them into thinking they won the lottery, but they hadn't.
In round 1, called "Brain Box", the adults played a game where they scored points by answering questions from a topic the kid chose using a carnival game, e.g.
The scene looked like a bright blue circular space-themed set with (From Clockwise) The Gunk Dunk, A Kart Entry, Dave Appearing, A Cage, The house of fun, Dodgems and The Contestants entrance, with people sitting (awkwardly) in the very middle. As a result of the complaints, CBBC's continuity announcers ran a competition where children who could guess how the trick was done could win a prize. Starting in the 2000 series, round 1 games usually involved gunge (these games were not as messy as the Gunk Dunk), and because of that, the double points round was moved to round 1. This series was most feared by the adults as the gunge was at its thickest and adults were covered in really thick gunge, making the dunking even more memorable for the kids and viewers, some gunk dunks were much bigger and overfilled on certain occasions meaning the gunge would go everywhere when the adult was thrown in. She also explained the child's reasons for getting his or her own back, instead of the child themselves. Only the last 10 seconds are shown on the on-screen timer, and Dave always provides commentary for each of the games (except "Goo Who?" and "Dodge the Splodge"). At the same time, the adult, who also has an RC car, will try to crash into the kids car to knock it off course. The kid uses a tennis ball cannon to knock off the planets while the adult bounces up and down to dodge the balls. On the other side of the course was a box where the kids had to place the battery into before making their way back to the start for their next battery. The kid had to grab a piece of candy and place it into a basket on the other side of the maze. Each scores 10 points per nugget, but the child that is first to get all six nuggets in the bin (and 60 points with it) gave their adult a "royal flush", which activates a trapdoor located above the adults' heads, and gunges the matching adult, and then that adults throne deflates.
The middle wall has four discs to begin with, and the child's and adult's wall has discs on it. The child has 45 seconds to throw velcro tennis balls at the wheel, scoring 10 points per ball landing on the correct team colour (20 points per ball landing on the bullseye attached to the adult's outfit in later playings regardless of team colour). Dave always asked viewers with a nervous disposition to look away or briefly turn off the television while he reached into the mouth and counted the items. The children have to grab the boulders and place them in their respective holders while the adults have to grab the boulders and throw them back inside the volcano. The children score 10 points per egg (or 20 points if played as the last game during the format when the last game was for double points). If the adults couldn't match the answers to all three questions, they had to wear the "shower cap of shame" for the penultimate round.
At the same time, the adults, who were dressed as giant penguins, took away any unclaimed fish in their teams color and placed it into a pouch attached to their penguin costume.
The kid has to grab one coin at a time out of the chest and place it in any pocket they choose, alternating sides with each coin (e.g. The children must still grab the tubes, make their way through the obstacle course that resembles an atom, and fill any gunge left into the correct tube to mix two colours together to make a new colour (purple, orange, or green). The child sits atop a broomstick attached to a circular device powered by the adult running in circles (while the adult is dressed as a pumpkin).
The children have to take various items from their messy bedrooms, run through the middle section of the area with the wobbly clowns, and toss toys into their toyboxes. Each child scores 10 points per milkshake still standing, players could not upright milkshakes that tipped over and stayed on the tray. The louder the adult sings, the more the wall vibrates, and the less likely the discs are to stay on the wall.

Dave and Lisa gave the adults 10 seconds each to plead their case as to why they should stay dry, and the audience would use yellow and blue sports fingers to vote for who they wanted to see get gunged in the Gunk Dunk. A series of inflatable-dependent games follows in which the kid has to propel item A from location B to location C using implement D while their parent tries to prevent the same happening by use of implement E whilst randomly dressed up as a giant F and given miscellaneous handicap G. This was by means of answering questions that had very obvious answers beginning with a certain letter, but - and here was the rub - they could not give answers beginning with that letter, which would of course have been far too easy. The introduction of the furance resulted in numerous complaints to the BBC's Points of View programme, ranging from upset caused to children, to the needless destruction of objects.
When he was finally taken to the Gunk Dunk, Kirsten told Dave that if answered one question right, they would let him go, but unfortunately Mr.
In series 4, a third puzzle round called "Puzzle Time" (either a maze or 3-D jigsaw) was played as well, where the adult and child in opposite colours played together to win points for the grown up.
The child who scored the most points won the show and was taken through, with their adult, to the final round - the Gunk Dunk. The number of rounds before the Gunk Dunk was reduced to 4, but changed back to 5 rounds in the 2003 series. Each kid gets 3 attempts to get their car successfully through the course without overturning or going off the track. At the same time, the adult will throw fake fish onto the inflatable path to slow the kid down. The adults stood in the middle of the course with some gunge that they would throw on the course with noodle strainers to make it slippery for the kids to navigate.
The kids ran in opposite directions and had to make a full lap around the maze before returning to the center to grab their next piece of candy. The child has to toss bags onto targets to score points and earns 10 points per bag on the target, regardless of where it landed.
The child scores 10 points per piece of French toast in the egg cup, plus 10 points per piece of toast broken through while crawling through the gates(not counting pieces the child already broke through).
The children score 10 points per ball in the hoop (or 20 if played as the last game for double points), but have to mind the dot with a "W" on it.
At the end of 60 seconds, the child with the largest amount of gunge releases a shower of gunge over the adult. To help the children, a chart is placed above the course to show what two primary colours mix to make the correct secondary colour.
The child scores 10 points per fly on the lollipop, and flies thrown by the spider don't count. The time limit varies depending on the length of the song, although the song is usually trucinated down from its regular length.
Or, rather, as close an approximation to the submitted game as could be fashioned from the BBC budget. As a result, it was revealed that the items placed into the furnace were not in fact burnt, with their demise being recreated through computer trickery, and the child being given their possession back after filming. Blobby was asking the questions, so Dave couldn't answer them correctly and went headfirst into the gunge. To get bonus points for each question answered, the grown up did a chore they always got the kid to do (e.g.
This series had 2 "knock-down bonus" rounds added after the first 2 rounds, where the kids played games to deduct the grown up's scores. Rounds 1 and 4 were head-to-head games, and rounds 2 and 3 were individual games, with the team that scored the lowest in the last round going first(If the last round ended in a tie, the team with the lowest overall score went first). The adult was then sat on a seat attached to a mechanism, above a 2'6" deep pool of colourful gunge that usually had fancy pictures and writing such as toadstools, cows or skulls and crossbones projected onto it. The format was also changed again so that both adults sat above the gunge tank with the winning child from the games being given a 1 notch head start (or, if the winning margin was 60 points or more, a 2 notch head start).
Each kid scores 10 points per battery and the first kid to get all 4 batteries(and 40 points with it) activates the energizer, which releases a vat of gunge above the adults head and gunges that adult. Along the way, the adults, dressed as giant pieces of candy, try to block the progress of the kid on their own team, the adult was not allowed to block the opposing teams kid. In the 2003 season, this game had no time limit; it continued until one child got all six nuggets. The child has 45 seconds to attach discs on the middle wall whilst the adult has to steal the discs one by one and put them on their wall.
In early playings, the bullseye on the adult's outfit was worth no points and used for humour. At the same time, the adult, dressed as a captain, rocks the ship by tugging on a cord attached to the ships back end. Each correct mixing is worth 20 points, and the first child to mix all three colours together correctly (and earn 60 points) opens a vat which releases blue or yellow gunge on the matching adult. Blobby participating, and in spite of her promising Dave he'd escape the dunk if he got one correct answer, Mr. Nevertheless, the furnace section of the programme was edited out of all subsequent episodes, and did not return in the following series. The winning grown up got the "key to freedom" and left clean, with the loser being sent to the gunk dunk (via the ghost train).
Each piece of candy in the basket after 60 seconds was worth 10 points(20 points if played as the last round where points values double). The child scores 10 points per disc on the middle wall and 10 bonus points for each rule infraction in the event the adult took more than one disc at a time. However, "children are not permitted without an adult" so the adults inevitably got it in the end.
The winning grown up left, with the losers advanced to round 2, called "Chumps Challenge", where the remaining adults played another game (either a video game, an obstacle race with the kid, or a karaoke performance).
Also, while not a scheduled Gunk Dunk, Dave was also dragged into the Gunk Dunk tank by Philippa Forrester, after her dunking in 1992. The loser of this round (scores did not carry over from the Brain Box round) went to the gunk dunk. The grown up would get the child dunked if they answered five correct answers in under 45 seconds without using answers beginning with a particular letter (which all questions had obvious answers to).
After the three questions were asked, the child would pull a fourth 'golden' lever, red gunge would fall on the grown up & the grown-up would be dropped into the gunk tank, regardless of how many questions they answered correctly.
Failure (or eventually otherwise, despite Dave's assurance that winning would spare them) resulted in the grown up being Gunged.
