Special Patrol Group, usually referred to in initials as SPG, was the tertiary antagonist of The Young Ones. He was a destructive hamster with a Glaswegian accent.


In The Young Ones

In the first episode Demolition, Rick says that Special Patrol Group was a stupid name for a hamster in order to frustrate Vyvyan and get attention. However Vyvyan in reply decides to momentarily and temporarily change his name by calling SPG "Cliff Richard," much to Rick's annoyance and disgust.

He met his end in Summer Holiday, when he was asleep on the radiator of Vyvyan's car when he crashed in into a power pole and crushed him. As he rose up as an angel to heaven to the tune of "Amazing Grace" played on the bagpipes he scorned Vyvyan by saying;"I'll see you later you little wimp!".


  • Given his name, it is perhaps no coincidence that SPG shares his owner's fondness for extreme violence.
