Viv gets his bacon sandwich, and eats it too

It's a sure sign of the utter brilliance of the Young Ones that I can literally watch an episode a thousand times and still miss an obvious joke. It was bad enough when I didn't see the unsettling flatmate sitting there in plain sight, but completely missing the fact that pig mascot Bacon Sandwich in the Bambi episode got actually turned into bacon by Viv, who is scoffing him down during the climactic mayhem of University Challenge, is just appalling.
