French and Saunders, the world-class comedy duo, have been around now for nearly 20 years entertaining us through the box in the corner. French and Saunders are famous for many takes/spoofs; but most notably the world famous comedy show Absolutely Fabulous, which started in the late 80s, early 90s as a small sketch of a modern mother and daughter. For the first four series they were joined by the spoof middle-of-the-road comedy cabaret duo Raw Sex (Rivron and Brint), who also supported in the sketches. In the 1996 series the duo returned to our screens for more hilarious takes of Baywatch, Braveheart and the singer Bjork. After many years without a series French and Saunders returned in the fall of 2004 for a 6th series of the smash hit comedy.

S03E01 The Sound of Music 15/03/1990 Season 3 kicks off with a great 'Sound of Music' send up - Dawn as Maria and Jen as Mother Superior fight it out to sing 'Climb ev'ry Mountain'. Jerry Hall and Marie Helvin stand in for Dawn and Jen while their off on the 'catwalks of Milan'. They use a Channel 4 programme layout, 'Star Test' to interview pop-stars of the moment, throughout season 3 - this week it's 'sophisticated, scouse' Sonia. One of the 2 fat ladies cuts off a finger - 'blood and sand', then later we see the land-rover driven through the kitchen wall in order to catch the game-birds. Dawn is 'A Right Royal Guest' on a TV-am spoof. The fantastic Abba show us their new video for 'C'est Vie, c'est vie!'. Kirsty MacColl sings the excellent '15 minutes' and we meet Dot and May, who run 'Star Pets' and train animals (and vegetables) for television.
S03E02 Whatever Happened to Baby Dawn? 22/03/1990 As the title suggests, this weeks film is a parody of 'Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?', with Jen isolated upstairs in a wheelchair, as Dawn gets up to some 'serupticious, drunken, bawdy mischief'. Guests on 'Star Test' this week are Matt and Luke Goss - 'Bros' (short for brothers). It's 'Dawns Dosh Spot' on TV-am and Kirsty MacColl duets with Ken Bishop on 'Somethin' Stupid'. The 2 Fat Ladies get home and discuss the wedding they've just attended and we join Jilly and Fiona, editors of 'Womanly World' magazine arranging the next issue.
S03E03 The Exorcist 29/03/1990 Poor Dawnie is posessed this week, as we see in the French and Saunders' take on 'The Exorcist'. We see into the pitfalls of being a 'lookie-likie' on 'Watch-Out', the consumer affairs programme, and how Maggie Philbins 'lookie-likie' is such a perfectionist she had to marry a Cheggers look-a-like! The 'She-Rappers' make their debut in front of 'a friend of Africa Bambaata', while errr... Hollywood 'expert' Dawn joins Jen on the TV-am sofa and discusses 'a day in the life of...Joan Collins. Kirsty MacColl sings 'I Ride' while Dawn and Jen don their leathers and ride their bikes in the video. Jo and Judith have a working lunch regarding 'Stars and their toilet seats' and come up with the innovative idea of a 'plop-up' book.
S03E04 Gone with the Wind 05/04/1990 Jen is Scarlet O'Hara - 'Fiddle-de-dee'! We see how they pass the time on a prison visit, 'Countdown' and 'Name That Tune' go down well! This weeks Star Test Guest is lead singer from Transvision Vamp, Wendy James. Ken from Raw Sex duets with his girlfriend via cassette as she's under the weather, while Kirsty MacColl sings the wonderful 'Don't Come The Cowboy With Me Sonny Jim'. We go out to a Country Cottage and watch the house-keepers discuss the laundry - '50 quid for a T-shirt? Couldn't believe it', the freaky-health-conscious boss 'poison?- white bread, apparently' and how to make a few quid!
S03E05 Dangerous Liaisons 12/04/1990 It's whispering rumours-'n'-deceit-beind-fans time as Dawn and Jen 'do' Dangerous Liaisons. Star Test interviews Tanita Tikaram and asks that burning question - ""What does 'Twist in my Sobriety' mean?"". ""I'm in the studio with Dr Eleanor Wood"" who's being interviewed for 'Record Choice', although the host is more amused by the Doctors 'ample,chunky,tubby,piggy' size than anything she has to say. 'Back with Dawn' on TV-am who today is, apparently an expert on 'space' (although the wrong kind of space!), and we hear 'A Wedding Day' on the Poetry Spot... arrr! The 'thinking mans crumpet' Joan Bakewell hosts an Arts programme dedicated to Andy Warholes work. There's been a mix-up in make-up when Sharon and Tracey from 'Birds of A Fea-ver' arrive in Jens living room.

S06E03 Episode 3 29/10/2004 Behind the scenes in the office, Dawn is feeling ignored and wonders why she hasn't been invited to the Palace to meet the Queen.

S00E03 French & Saunders Christmas Carol 30/12/1994
S00E04 The Making of The Filming of The Making of Titanic 24/12/1998 Look out Hollywood! Watch your back, TV-Land! The silver screen will never be the same once it's been processed through the mad minds of Britain's best comediennes, Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders (creator and star of Absolutely Fabulous).Celebrate the holidays French & Saunders style as they sink the Titanic, spear Britney Spears, enter The Matrix, and more!
S00E05 Easter Special 1999 02/05/1999 The nineties crime drama Silent Witness made it into the repertoire, becoming Witless Silence. Jennifer Saunders took the part of the forensic pathologist made famous by Amanda Burton and performed with understated relish. All the ingredients were there: the despondent shrug, that ponderous stare and, since Burton is from the Emerald Isle, the obligatory, "Har are yer?" But despite her skill in the morgue, our heroine can never quite manage to get her relationships together, despite those smugly arched eyebrows. While in the mood for bringing down giants it makes sense to go the whole hog, and next in French & Saunders' sights is the mighty Boyzone. A short, sharp shockingly funny Mickey-take out of the boy band that grew up. Perfect in their roles were Dawn as down-at-heel Steven Gately and Jennifer as frontman Ronan Keating. Together, much as in the real thing, these two singers make up the five-piece band. Alanis Morrisette - a respected artist whose music is memorable and poignant. An ideal candidate, then, for treatment by Jennifer Saunders, although this time as Aimless Morris Minor singing Bless You (formerly Thank You). The said treatment is to remedy over-dependence on a thesaurus. Our spring concert closes with Dawn French (herself born in Holyhead, North Wales) masquerading as Catatonia-cum-Catantonic frontwoman and First Lady of Welsh pop, Cerys Mathews. Not only back to her roots but back to the local pub belting out Cymru Pride in a smoke filled, disco-lit bar. An altogether different kind of Welsh Assembly.
S00E06 The Phantom Millennium 28/12/1999 Our contessas of comedy didn't disappoint with this year's Christmas Special. Their movie spoofs are already the stuff of legend but their 'Star Wars' spectacular, subtitled 'The Phantom Millennium', was surely another classic. Jennifer Saunders did an uncanny riposte of Qui-Gon Jinn while Dawn French became Toby Jugs Kenobi. Then there was a fantastic Martine McCutcheon send-up by French, while Jennifer cleverly aped the crazed Melanie C (Sporty Spice). The other sketches which punctuated the show featured French & Saunders' customary surreal living room chat and Dawn as a stroppy 'Diana Ross' aeroplane passenger to Jennifer's airport security officer. But the star of this show was always the movie send-up which with French & Saunders' acute observations, fantastic hair and make-up, surprisingly good special effects (did you check those lightsabres?) and a generous dollop of silliness made 'The Phantom Millennium' a treasure.
S00E07 The Egg 29/03/2002 Armed with ring and staff, French & Saunders deliver a full complement of Easter funnies. Beginning with a cockle-warming reunion as Grandalf the sage-like wizard is reunited with his young hobbit friend. Some optical disillusionment later, and the quest is underway; the wizard seeks to align himself with a mysterious sorcerer who looks remarkably like Dale Winton, while the mischievous hobbit uses all his ingenuity to escape the murderous Ringwraiths.
S00E08 Celebrity Christmas Puddings 25/12/2002
S00E09 Harry Potter and the Secret Chamberpot of Azerbaijan 14/03/2003
S00E10 French & Saunders Actually 26/12/2003 French and Saunders skewer female excess like no one else--in a holiday special included as a bonus, French does a devastating version of Catherine Zeta-Jones giddily reveling in her success, giving a Christmas speech as the Queen of Wales. The loopiness of the best bits defies description; their rapport and timing are simply exquisite. It's a pleasure to be in their company again
S00E15 Comic Relief 2009 (1) 13/03/2009 Short Mama Mia skit - part 1.
S00E16 Comic Relief 2009 (2) 13/03/2009 Short Mama Mia skit - part 2.
S00E20 At The Movies 00/00/0000 Wait till you see what these funny femmes do with movies that range from A to, uh T - from "Alien" to "Thelma and Louise", plus "Misery" (watch out for the sledgehammer, dearie) and "The Silence of the Lambs". Also in French and Saunders' comedy sights are Shakespeare's England, the royal family, stuffy costume dramas, music videos and those sex-crazed dweebs who deliver the inter-office mail in a company just like yours.
S00E21 Back With A Vengeance 00/00/0000 Who, while watching Cold Mountain, didn't hope that French & Saunders would soon be back with a vengence? The girls are in fine form for Kill Bill and Troy as well. That still leaves plenty of time for their favorite celebrity targets. Saunders sends up the many songs and wigs of Cher, and French returns as Caterine Spartacus-Zeta-Douglas-Jones.
S00E22 Gentlemen Prefer French and Saunders 00/00/0000 Gentlemen prefer blondes, but when Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders parody Jane Russell and Marilyn Monroe, it's proof enough why comedy fans prefer French and Saunders. And ever wondered what the Queen has for a mid-morning snack? Of course not. But that won't stop breakfast chat-show star Dawn from hilariously reporting on this and other topics of equal importance. Stunning highlights include the meeting of the minds behind the book "Rock Stars and Their Toilets Seats", a special "Opera Classics" recording session, and outrageous look at the magazine industry with "Womanly World" and the original "Absolutely Fabulous" skit.
S00E23 Living In A Material World 00/00/0000 It's never safe to go in the water when there hilarious hotties throw on their swimsuits to join the cast of "Baywatch"... and that's just the beginning. French and Saunders puncture pretentions with sketches based on Fellini and Bergman, and mock the material girl before mopping up the floor with "Batman" and "Braveheart".
S00E24 The Ingenue Years 00/00/0000 No one is safe when there ultra-funny femmes fatales parody some of Hollywood's brightest stars, including (but not limited to) Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Elizabeth Taylor and Doris Day. There's something for everyone in this collection: prima ballerinas, naughty schoolgirls, beer-drinking louts and Bond... James Bond.
