Stu Dennison

Stu Dennison became a household name in the 1970s as the irreverent host of children's programme Nice One Stu. He played the naughty schoolboy role, becoming an antihero to a generation of New Zealanders. His signature theme song and thumbs-up salute became firmly embedded in New Zealand's popular culture. 

[Nice One Stu was] all about giving them [viewers] some fun, a laugh and the occasional message. Great days when there were no rules in how a kids’ tv show should work. If there was a rule my motto was break it.
