"Bonkers!" was an ATV variety show from 1979, distributed by ITC Entertainment.

Starring Bob Monkhouse and the Hudson Brothers - Bill, Brett and Mark - the show featured sketches, guest stars and musical numbers. Whilst not a big hit for ATV, it gained a cult audience in the United States where it was compared to Saturday Night Live.

After four episodes the show was curtailed in the UK by the 13-week long ITV strike of 1979 and did not reappear when the network restarted broadcasts; however, production for syndication continued and 24 episodes in total were made.
