Here's an example of Ratz breaking down on Live and Kicking:
Whilst this is all a little before my time (I was born in 1991, and my first CBBC memories are late Studio A stuff, largely the birthday cards from the Broom Cupboard-esque self-op part of Studio A) I became quite interested in this period of CBBC around 10-11 years ago, when lots of vintage CBBC began to be uploaded to YouTube.
It seemed to me from what was being uploaded at that point that in early 1994 Phillipa and Ratz were the regular Sunday morning double-act, with Ratz also joining the Broom Cupboard presentation during holiday mornings and other 'bigger budget' occasions, rather than the afternoon slot.
When was he dropped, do we think? Did he carry on during the summer of 94? I know he was there for Philippa's last day, as in the video posted above.
And in Live and Kicking, was it literally just Andi and Emma for the 94-95 run? I know that Mitch joined the team to help ease the show along in the 95-96 run, but he really developed his 'persona' during the Zoe and Jamie years.
