THE COMICS' BEAT: Iceman In Billy Connolly's 'Super Gran'

Mondays. They are worse than Dr Doom and after a heavy one, it can be a little hard to get the drum pumping again for the week ahead. As a former DJ, each Monday I dig into my collection, and chuck up a hit nodding to comics' best.

This week, it's the theme tune to the live-action TV series Super Gran, written by comedian Billy Connolly. Even as a kid I used to dig that someone had slipped in a character like X-Man and Defender Iceman, along with the usual global icons of Superman, Batman and Robin. 

"Stand back Superman, Iceman, Spider-man, Batman and Robin too.
Don't wanna cause a ruckus, with BA Barracas?
Well, I've got a match for you.'"

  1. Supergran - ah that brings back memories. I thought it was only a British made prog so am glad you all got to see it in other countries.
    That theme tune sure was catchy. But then so were measles until immunisation.

  2. Thanks Karl! I thought you might be one of the few who remembered it. Here it was on just when I got home from soccer. Not knowing about rights etc, and just running on the name, I kept waiting for Brainiac to show up, or for her to wear the 's'.!

    Billy Connolly, well he's just funny on heaps of levels - measeled or otherwise ;)
