So is part of the humor that the puppets look and sound absolutely nothing like the people they're intended to portray?

They probably do, except they're mostly politicians nobody remembers outside the UK. It was cutting edge stuff back in the day. I remember their US special had a ton of Ed Meese jokes that would make no sense to a non-American or anyone born after 1970. Hell, the only joke I got was that his head was cubical.. literally a "block head".

This show always made me mad when I was little because it had puppets in it, and yet I didn't understand what the fuck was going on. So it was an act of betrayal by the grownups. Why would they make a puppet show that children don't understand? I hate grownups.

Me too. The only bit I understood was Thatcher tonguing Reagan's asshole.

Desidiosus
Actually it's a pretty accurate portrayal of The Young Ones.
