a truly classic episode... just think, if the same writers were still around today there could have been so much to work on with Tinky-Winky!

Most of the alleged names of Captain Pugwash characters were a myth... I think the only one who might have been there was Roger the Cook (or Cabin Boy, can't remember which). Mr Staines and Mr Bates weren't actually present! Check the link:

I've got a Rainbow related question to ask:

Why did Bungle spend all day naked then put on his pyjamas to go to bed?

I wish to answer this in alternative Nursery Rhyme form...


Mary had a little bear
To it she was so kind
And everywhere that Mary went
She had a bear behind......

I posted this link on some time ago and eventually it was ascertained (much to my disappointment!) that this 'sketch' wasn't actually broadcast but done for a gag with some spare time they had for filming.

Didn't Geoffrey Hayes end up as a taxi driver in Brighton, or something? Thought there was a documentary on TV a few years ago about what had happened to him.

Please check my post above as regards Captain Pugwash. Do people really think that broadcasters are THAT stupid. Just shows everyone believes what they read in the papers and not what they actually remember. The creator of Captain Pugwash successfully sued two newspapers for suggesting character names with inuendo existed!
