Crazy Cottage was a children's game show created by Paul Zenon, produced by Action Time for Carlton and broadcast on ITV from 4 April 1996 to 29 May 1998. It was first presented by Rick Adams, followed by Jez Edwards with a puppet cuckoo called Vera. The gimmick of the show was that most things had to be performed backwards. The show started with the presenter saying "goodbye", then starting the games at Round 5. One of the rounds involved a series of actions that had to be performed in a certain order, so that when it was played back in reverse, it matched what they were asked to do. Another round was a kitchen set up on a slope, but appeared to the viewers as a normal room. At the end of the programme, the winning team won a prize, such as a trip to Alton Towers. The losing team would win a backwards invention, for example, a black lightbulb.
