Cosgrove Hall Wiki

Hyp-Not-Isn't is the fifth episode in Season 1 of Victor and Hugo: Bunglers in Crime that was broadcasted on ITV in the UK on October 18, 1991.


After checking a book on hypnotism out of a library without a library card, Victor tries to hypnotise Hugo into being a better criminal, but it does not go to plan when he sneezes while hypnotising him, and it becomes the cue to set him off; after failing to break into the Bank of England, he consults the book for a cure and hits Hugo over the head with Interpol, but the effects are transferred to Interpol.
