The Dog Ate My Homework is the school-based panel show that lets you down, lets CBBC down, and above all, lets itself down... It's the series that throws out the text books along with the rule book, and turns everything about school on its head.

BAFTA-nominated comedian and CBBC favourite Iain Stirling hosted the first six series, but now the show is hosted by guest presenters.

On every show there are two teams, featuring comedians, celebrity guests and a junior sidekick. Both teams are faced with a mischievous mix of tongue-in-cheek comedy, off-the-wall questions, nonsensical studio games, and slapstick challenges.

The Dog Ate My Homework is the show that finally puts the cool back into school.
