Trump, Johnson and Putin's Penises Debut In New Spitting Image

Spitting Image is returning to screen next month, courtesy of streaming site Britbox. The popular satirical puppet show of the eighties and nineties was a scabrous, silly, saucy and downright salacious piece of polemic, in the spirit of Hogarth, Gilray, Scarfe and Bell. And as modern day politics outstrip the extremes of the eighties, it appears its overdue a return. The new Spitting Image will air on streaming service Britbox this coming Saturday and it is already driving subscriptions.
