But 30 years after the last show appeared on the box, cult TV show Thingummyjig is to make a long-awaited comeback for a series of live performances.
Hosted by Jack McLaughlin, the show was one of STV's most watched programmes in the 70s and 80s, and subsequent stage shows proved so popular they sold out venues across the country.
Now the show will return next year, with the first performance at the Haddington Corn Exchange, East Lothian, just a mile or so from McLaughlin's home.
Some of the show's original stars have agreed to perform on the bill, including Alastair MacDonald, Tom Alexander and the John Carmichael Band, who will appear alongside Scottish music stars of tomorrow and, of course, the Thingummyjig Dancers.
The Thingummyjig Ceilidh Show is on 5 April next year.
