In the episode "Bambi", the housemates appeared on University Challenge, where they played against Footlights College, Oxbridge, a reference to the Footlights drama club at Cambridge University. The Footlights College team was played by show writer Ben Elton and three actors who were once members of the real Cambridge Footlights: Emma Thompson, Hugh Laurie and Stephen Fry, the last of whom had actually appeared on the quiz show while at Cambridge. The episode title is a reference to the show's presenter, Bamber Gascoigne, impersonated by Griff Rhys Jones.

While writing the novel, I thought and read a lot about disability and continued to think about all that underestimated potential. I got so enthused about it that I made the other hero of the book a young woman who has paraplegia. The story was about traffic-induced urban paralysis (Gridlock!) and I figured a girl who had to deal with the issue of urban mobility every second of her life, while fighting to have access to the stuff the rest of us take for granted, might prove a fittingly astute and inventive comrade for Geoffrey.
This is arguably the best episode of The Young Ones, where the guys are invited to go on University Challenge, representing Scumbag College, against the posh students of Footlights College Oxbridge played by Stephen Fry, Hugh Laurie, Ben Elton & Emma Thompson. The host of the show is a parody of Bamber Gascoigne played by Griff Rhys Jones, here called Bambi because he was previously the deer in the Disney film and had gone on to do an X-rated sequel. And Mel Smith stars as a receptionist at the TV studio, who has to deal with the pig that Vyvyan has brought along as a mascot. The quiz scene is a lot of fun to watch, as the posh team cheat their way to victory, in response to which the Scumbag team violently eliminate their opponents before being squashed by a giant chocolate eclair.
