Dougal And The Blue Cat
A Magic Roundabout movie of which Mark is hugely enamoured but Simon insists is one of the worst films ever.
When Mark left Radio 1, instead of the usual leaving party involving bars and night clubs, he requested a special screening of Dougal And The Blue Cat and asked everyone to attend. According to James King, some of the Radio 1 executives found the experience to be baffling.
When a listener wrote in asking for a film to show their three-year-old daughter for a film to show them that had cows in it, Mark suggested Dougal And The Blue Cat for the scenes with Ermintrude. Although there aren't many of these scenes, they at least make sense, unlike, say, Barnyard (in which all the cows are male. With udders).
During an interview with Emma Thompson (whose father Eric Thompson narrated the film), Mark could not resist expressing his love of it, and threatened to demonstrate his ability to repeat the whole film off by heart.
