These are taken from original Rainbow scripts and there's no way these could have been done by Accident.

Innuendo all the way


The sketch opens with Zippy peeling a banana.....

Zippy: " One skin, two skin, three skin, four "

George: " Zippy, where is Bungle?"

Zippy: " I think Geoffrey is trying to get him up"

We see a view of the door and hear Bungle moaning from
behind it.

Bungle: " Geoffrey, I can't get it in"

Geoffrey: "You managed it last night"

Bungle: "I know, lets try it round the Otherway.  Ooooooh, I've got it in"

Bungle and Geoffrey enter the studio with Bungle carrying a hammer and peg kit

Bungle: " Would you stick this on the shelf, George"

George: " I can't reach, you'll have to stick it up yourself,

Bungle." Geoffrey (to camera) " Hello everyone, today we are talking about playing"

Bungle: " Playing with each other, Geoffrey?"

Geoffrey:" Yes Bungle, do you have a special friend
that you like to play with?"

George:" Yesterday we played with each other's balls.  Are we going  to play with our friend's balls today?

Bungle: " Yes, and we can play with our twangers as
well."

Geoffrey: (to camera) Have you seen Bungles twanger?

Zippy:" Oh I have, I showed him how to pluck with it."

Bungle: " It's my plucking instrument."

Geoffrey asks the audience if they can pluck like
Bungle

Zippy:" I can, I'm the best plucker here."

George;" And I'm good at banging. My peg's hard isn't
it Zippy?

Zippy:" Well of course it is, Your peg wouldn't go in
if it was soft."

Geoffrey;" Let's get back to Bungle's twanger."

Bungle (excited) " Oooooh Geoffrey, we could all play with our twangers couldn't we? Let's play the plucking song. Rod and Roger can get their instruments out and Jane has got two lovely Maracas."

Singers Rod, Freddy and Jane enter.

Freddy:" We could hear you all banging away"

Rod: " Banging can be fun."

Jane:" Ooooh yes, and I was banging away all last
night with Rod and Freddy."

Freddy ( looking sad ) " Yes, but it broke my plucking
instrument."

Rod ( to Jane ) " Do you want to blow on my pipe while I'm twanging away?"

Jane: " Oh no, I was banging away with Freddy last night. But would you like to play with my maracas?

Zippy; " No, let's just pluck away with our twangers."

George:" Yes, it doesn't matter what size our twanger is."
 
 Zippy;"I've got a big red one."

George: " I've only got a tiny twanger. But it works well and I like to play with
 it."

 Geoffrey (to viewers) "Well, have you got your twangers out? And remember, you can bang your balls at the same time. If you haven't got any, ask a friend if you can play with his.  Now,let's all play the plucking song."
 
 Everyone in studio: " Pluck, pluck, pluck along, we're going to pluck
 all day..........

Holy rumpwart, what am I missing here? Is Rainbow some kind of children's show parody on BBC? (And I thought Russell Crowe Fightin' 'Round The World was messed up...)

Nope... Rainbow was a lunch-time childrens show (aimed at pre-schoolers) back in the 80's. Used to be staple viewing for me as a 3-year-old. Its all pretty harrowing. I had to have years of extensive counciling to remove it all from my brain.

(And the less said about 'Rod, Jane and Freddy' the better)

Rainbow was on back in the 70s, I'm not sure if that is true though, the pugwash story is just an urban myth, alas  frown

That show sure sounds perverted.

"Russell Crowe Fightin' Round The World" was cool.  It was actually a background story in South Park, but to me it 's more like it was the main theme.

I'm surprised ANYONE was able to make any sense out of DP's post. Looks like we're missing out on a lot of weird British TV in the states.

As a side-note to Tweek's post. Zippy (centre in pic) and George (the pink hippo) were sold for 7000 recently at auction, hence the pic's location.

Bungle (left) was shot and turned into a throw rug whilst Geoffery was 'named and shamed' in a "News of the World Expose" for crimes against humanity.

(actually I have it on good authority that Geoffery now works in Sainsbury's, can anyone confirm this?)

[EDIT] Oh yeah... Here are fellow 'Rainbow' regulars, Rod, Jane & Freddy. They sang songs... We left the room...[/EDIT]

I must admit, when I was very young I used to watch Rainbow, I know, tragic. It was kind of cool though, Zippy with his attitude, and George with that strange voice. For some reason, all of this is reminding me of Sooty, and Playdays.

Yeah Percy was cool but I think James was my favourite  smile The new episodes of Thomas the Tank Engine are rubbish because the voices have changed and they've brought in lots of new trains with wierd and wonderful names..its just not the same  smile

I havn't seen any of the new episodes, but I expect the reason for the new trains is because they've updated it to move with the times smile

The show is pretty good, or it was, when I was young I had all the books, Henry was my favourite as I recall, probably because the first book I got was mainly about him.

"Postman Pat" was great. And what an expert driver! He could go round 90 corners without slowing down or hitting the stonewall that lined the road, inches from the van.

Schumacher hasn't got anything on him.

Incidentally Postman Pat was banned in Japan. Apparently the lack of a 'little finger' is the symbol of the Japanese mafia.

There was a great cartoon on when I was a wee lad.

Incidently wiggles does that mean they do not show Futurama and the simpsons in Japan since they only have three fingers.

You know that's all bullshit, right? Try Master Mate and Tom the Cabin Boy.

I loved that show, it seemed to go on forever. (for any brits under the age of 21 or indeed yanks who might be scratching their heads here is 'Dogtanian' with the 'Muskerhounds'.

While we are on a 'nostaligia-fest' does anyone remember MASK?

Nope; The Simpsons is/was just as wildly popular in Japan as everywhere else. I don't think Futurama has run there yet. Side note: it is impossible to talk like Donald Duck in Japanese and be even marginally understood; in Japan Donald has a shockingly deep, normal voice.

Umm, that three finger thing...Is it just a forbidden symbol, like the SS or swastika in Germany? 

Or is it just a fake reason, because the Japanese want to protect the manga/anime market?

Hey Wiggles what do you mean for those under 21 I'm 18 and I remember the show mind you I have a good memory for obscure shos like that.
And Zombie I'm doubtful as wiggles said it is because it is symbolic of the yacuza or however you spell it.

Yakuza. Ironically, the late Ozamu Tezuka used himself to illustrate the 'three-or-four?' finger issue in a story reprinted in the newest English-language volume of his Astro Boy manga from Dark Horse Comics. He says that he learned from American animators that because a moving hand may appear to have more fingers than it actually does (and because most audience members aren't looking and don't care), the number of fingers were reduced. (He then suggests that his own depiction of Astro Boy's spiked head is physically impossible. Heh heh.)

Did any of you lovely English residents remember a program called Trapdoor?  smile It was about this little blue guy and I think he was a servant for someone down the "trapdoor". He was made out of plasticine and I think he had a friend who was a skull as well. I used to really enjoy watching it  smile

Actually, you're right, they don't. I saw on the news once that The Simpsons were banned because they had four fingers. Anime characters always have five fingers; even Mario from Nintendo has five on each hand.

No way, guy--The Simpsons DOES show in Japan--seen it myself--and Astro Boy had three fingers and a thumb. Sometimes four fingers and thumb. (See my last two posts above.) You must've heard a suburban legend.

It does air. I read a thing about the Bongo crew making ads for a Japanese soft drink (Lemon) and it was endorsed by the simpsons, but only 5% have the proper TV channels to see them. THe drink wa spopular there though, 3rd behind Coke and Pepsi.

Hey I'm 16 and I used to LOVE Dogtanian. Ah the memories. I used to love Thomas the Tank Engine too. Douglas and Duncan were my favourite engines - Ringo Starr having to try a Scottish accent  laffbig grin

I second (or is it third now) the absolute fact that the Simpsons is shown in Japan. It featured as an example of Simpsons in other languages on the BBC "Simpsons Night" a year or to back.
