1. Firstly, there was that catchy as hell theme song.

"Have you ever? Ever felt like this?"

2. Seriously, that theme song was a banger.


The only theme song 90s kids know better is The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

3. Then there was the completely bizarre story plots.

Like the time Pete got cursed by a ghost dog and had to end every sentence with "without my pants."

4. Episode Little Squirts saw Bronson befriend a water spirit to win a pissing competition.

No, really.

5. Another episode saw elder brother Pete gain superpowers from sticking his pants in the mircowave.

6. There was also a whole bunch of stories where spirits got with the Twist children.

Here's Pete after getting impregnated by a wood nymph in series three opener The Big Burp.

7. Just a whole bunch of spirit on human action.

Bronson's quick snog behind the bins is weird because the sculpture housed an ice maiden who wanted to marry him. Because obviously.

8. And if the children weren't getting with spirits, they were stumbling on spirit babies.

Memorable episode The Cabbage Patch Fib saw Bronson learn about the birds and the bees by finding cabbages babies growing in his back garden.

9. Then there was the propeller willy episode.

Come to think of it, quite a few episode of this series had to do with penises.

10. Basically, any Bronson episode sticks long in the memory.

Imagine that thing spinning around your hoo hah AT THE AGE OF TEN.

11. Linda Twist once helped sort out this Prince Charming transformation.

This one is from The Ice Cream Man Cometh. Prince Charming here could make ice cream come out out his nose.

12. We're not making this up.

13. Then there was heartwarming story Nails.

Where it turned out the new boy in school was actually a merman.

14. Slightly less heartwarming was second episode Birdsdo.

There's also a dragon involved in this one. But what really stuck in the mind was all of the poop.

15. It wasn't just bird poo that was a plot point...

Little Black Balls saw the entire town of Port Niranda sift through goat droppings to find a opal.

Poop and penises. Round The Twist had you covered.

16. Remember this particular bit of nightmare fuel?

Buzzfeed / Via ABC

This haunted scarecrow came from Know All, where the Twists found an old trunk of circus clothes that gave them memories of their former wearers.

Apparently one of these was an axe murderer....

17. Lastly, there were the ghosts.

Prankster ghosts.

Prankster ghosts.

18. So so many ghosts.

Surfer ghosts...

Surfer ghosts...

19. Seriously there was like a ghost in every other episode of this.

This particular fellow haunted a local toilet.More terrifying than Goosebumps and Are You Afraid Of The Dark combined.
