24 years after it last aired, the show is returning to dig at some of the world’s biggest names in modern politics and pop culture. Back in its heyday, Spiting Image was a cultural success having received both critical acclaim and praise from the public. During its 12 year run, the show won four BAFTAs and four Emmys and boasted of having 15 million viewers at its height of popularity. It’s focus back then was more tightly on British politicians and royalty, such as Margaret Thatcher. After the original series ended in 1996, Spitting Image makes its return after over two decades.
