A Scare at Bedtime (RTE Two, 1997 to 2006)

Called Network 2 at the time, A Scare at Bedtime was an Irish urban legend/horror TV “show” that was created to fit the ten minute gap before the eleven o’clock news and the shortness of the (often) American TV show before it. Each episode concerned two elderly identical twin puppet brothers Padraig Judas “Podge” and Rodraig Spartacus “Rodge” O’Leprocy who live alone in a creepy former insane asylum, Ballydung Manor. Living with them is an insane old nurse they call “Granny” who also happens to be dating the devil and practices black magic and their deceased cat Pox.
