24: From the Grebulons to the G’Gugvuntts

Mark and Jon Bounds are joined by Jon Hickman to finish rattling through the Gs, including a stop off at the Guide, and some very special found poetry.


The Grebulons were awoken from hyperspace sleep with no memories, after a meteorite struck their ship. They are thin and, under domestic lighting conditions, a sort of dim purplish green. They settled on a moon orbiting Pluto, and monitored Earth, believing astrology to be an exact science.

Grunthos the Flatulent

Grunthos the Flatulent is a Krian poet; the second-worst in the universe.

The Guide

The Guide is a sort of electronic book, that has several million entries in an index you “fast wind” through. Each item has a code, which you type in on a small pad. This scrolls the screen to the selected item.

The Guide has been played - in what we might consider canon - by Peter Jones, William Franklin, Rula Lenska and Stephen Fry.


Gunk is a genre of music.This segment involves a lot of shouting.


The G’Gugvuntts are mortal enemies of the Vl’hurgs, who joined forces and went teaming across wormholes in space at the sound of Arthur Dent complaining about his lifestyle.
