Is this for real?

I remember kids shows being trippy in the 70s and have been to Christmas Pantomimes in the UK which are quite dirty for those of us old enough, but man this takes the cake.

Are we going to play with our friend's balls today?

"I don't want to blow today. I'm quite tires as I was blowing Roger's for most of last last".

That would never get aired on TV today.

Oh my sweet... baby jeebus! This was too much! I don't think I laughed the first time I watched it; I was too far gone in shock. How strangely hilarious is this?! I have to ask the same question: Is this for real?

Ha ha.
That was the greatest.

Thanks for making Friday a brighter day.

What I heard is that this is something the cast members did for kicks on the side, not an actual episode they aired. I'd have to ask a Briton to know for sure!

Are we all jaded? Could it possibly be that this was really innocent back then?
I have a hard time believing that, things haven't changed that much but MY GOD that was funny!

It wouldn't surprise me if it had aired. There were shows like the Magical Roundabout, and another that had characters named Seaman Stains and Roger the Cabin Boy! I'll have to ask my boyfriend, he is a Brit. I may have been something they did for a laugh on the side. Too funny.

My boyfriend's reply to this:

"Yeah this is British kid's TV - no worse than Captain Pugwash with his crew of reprobates inc. Ivor Longhorn, Master Bates, and Seaman Stains..."

you can check them out here if you are interested, it is definitely entertaining: http://www.snopes.com/radiotv/tv/pugwash.htm
