A common theme in The Young Ones was the use of a cutaway gag featuring ordinary household objects, items of food and animals talking to each other. Apart from Vyvyan's pet hamster, the significance of or even recognition of these sentient objects is complete overlooked by the characters. The following is a list, by episode, of such appearances throughout the series.
Series One Edit
Episode 1 "Demolition" Edit
