Digital Spy takes a look back at the comedy classic to find 10 memorable moments from Ron Burgundy's first screen outing.
1. Brick Tamland
The role that launched Steve Carell's career, there's comedy gold to be found in dim-witted weatherman Brick's quotes. "I love lamp." "I killed a guy with a trident." "I don't know what we're yelling about!!" What's your favourite Brick moment?
2. Jazz flute
Desperate to woo the news team's latest member Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate), Ron busts out the flute for some emphatic freestyling across tables, chairs and even underneath bathroom stalls.
3. Baxter (he's so wise!)
Ron's faithful canine pal stays loyal while others abandon him, but when Jack Black's angry motorcyclist boots him over a bridge it sends Ron spiralling into depression. "Baxter, is that you? Bark twice if you're in Milwaukee."
4. Sex Panther
Ladies' man Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) has a "special cologne" he uses for seduction. The pungent fragrance is apparently made with real panther and "illegal in nine countries".
5. "Mr Burgundy, you have a massive erection"
"It's the pleats, the pleats in the pants. It's an optical illusion. I was just about to take them back... to the pants store. Oh this is embarrassing."
6. Veronica and Ron's bickering
Veronica and Ron's back-and-forth as the Channel 4 news end credits roll is a masterclass in stinging comedy insults.
7. "Take me to Pleasuretown"
"I'm storming your castle on my steed, m'lady" may seem like a clunker when it comes to dirty talk, but the medieval line is still enough to light a spark between Ron and Veronica. Their love scene climaxes with a surreal, multi-coloured animation.
8. The rival news teams duke it out
A news team battle that includes blades, grenades and tridents, this sequence is epic enough to grace any action movie. Spot the celeb cameos as Tim Robbins, Vince Vaughn, Luke Wilson and Ben Stiller get in on the action.
9. Ron's phone booth meltdown
"I'm in a glass case of emotion!"
10. Afternoon Delight
Expressing inner anguish though the majesty of song, the news team's rendition of Starland Vocal Band's suggestive '70s hit is one to remember.
