The Mighty Boosh Cast

Pining over the Head of Reptiles, Mrs Gideon, a love-struck Howard writes a creamy poem and gets advice on women from Vince; he is then summoned to the office of the ‘Zoo-Niverse’ general manager, Bob Fossil, who has a new money-making scheme: an illegal boxing match involving a kangaroo. To Howard’s horror he finds himself blackmailed into taking part, under threat of Fossil releasing nude pictures that reveal his bizarre chest deformity. Vince offers to train Howard as a boxer, and with the help of his ‘uncle’ Steve, a training montage and a small boy dressed as a kangaroo, Howard’s confidence is boosted into believing that he can win the match and impress Mrs Gideon. But Vince is less than convinced, mainly because he made up his boxing knowledge, and he turns to zoo shaman Naboo for help. That night, with the aid of some of Naboo’s magic dust, Vince has a strange spirit dream that provides him with clues on beating the Killeroo – if only he can work them out in time… The next day Howard enters the boxing ring in front of a blood-hungry crowd presided over by Fossil; then the Killeroo is unveiled: a giant, vicious beast that immediately proceeds to beat the crap out of Howard…
