To refresh your memory, Round the Twist was the show that pushed the boundaries of what was acceptable for children to watch. Based on Paul Jennings’ beloved books, this show gave us the kind of plots where you can tell they were forced to think outside the box.
Like, do you remember the entire episode dedicated to Pete saying “Without my pants!”? I do. And, do you remember the time Bronson swallowed a fish and used it as some sort of penis-propeller to win a swimming race? I also do. Oh, and do you remember the incredibly fucked time that Pete got pregnant to a tree by peeing on it and then subsequently gave birth in the episode? Because I certainly do. And I’ll never forget it.
Round the Twist originally premiered in Australia in 1990, meaning it’s been a whopping 30 years since the show was originally on our shitty TV screens. I wonder how much it’ll hold up in HD?
Without a doubt, Round the Twist shaped so many of our childhoods and I can’t wait to relive it all, trauma and all. For more on Round The Twist, make sure you check out the time we watched the show with two of the original Bronsons. Honestly, what a time.
