With the brilliant news that The Den will be returning our TV screens this November, we got to thinking about what elements of the show we'd like to see make a comeback. Ray, Dustin, and Zig and Zag are already confirmed to be part of the new show on Sunday evenings but what else should feature?

We've reached back into our memories (with the help of the internet) to pull out some of our favourite pieces of nostalgia but we're sure to have missed loads of other stuff. Let us know what you'd like to see brought back.

1. The Flap Flaps

If Dustin doesn't do the Flaps Flaps on the first episode, we riot.

2. Evil Podge

He tried to ruin everything, the bastard.

3. The Toy Grand Prix

It was dogged in controversy when Postman Pat's bag was weighed down but we think enough time has passed for the sport to make a welcome return.

4. The Furry Green Telly Quiz

Which came first? The Furry Green Telly Quiz or The Furry Blue Telly Quiz? Either way, we want to see them back!

5. Joke Box

We've got the first guest for it everything.


6. Zuppy

He had no time for Podge and he was dead right!

7. Tom and Jerry Kids

No real reason to bring this back other than the fact that the intro music is an absolute banger.

8. The birthday segment

They called it Birthday Roller on Dempsey's Den, before continuing the tradition when Ray took the hotseat. One of the highlights of many a young kid's birthday.

9. Celebrity guests


Yea yea, sure, they had Irish President Mary Robinson in studio but who remembers when Zag wrestled The British Bulldog!?


10. Dustin's music career

So many songs to choose from. We went with this cracker himself and the great Ronnie Drew sang together.

11. Donny Conroy

Let's draw some owls!


12. The Christmas specials

If 2020 keeps going the way it has been then we're guaranteed another Christmas Crisis.

13. The Den2 website

Undoubtedly the grestest website that every existed.

14. Ted

A threat to society but entertaining nonetheless.

15. Aunt Monica

It's a package deal. The whole family needs to come back.

16. What's Snots?

We leave you with this piece of television history.
