    Pluck your twangers and play w/ your balls, Just... look!

    For those of you who don't know, "Rainbow" was a credible children's TV show from the 70's and 80's. This clip was actually broadcast and watched by millions.

    I can't believe this was a kids show!

    http://rainbow.arch.scriptmania.com/...v_episode.html

    The script

    For those of you who don't have kids or are far too young to remember
    the splendid children's TV program "Rainbow", this may be a little
    lost on you...... but it must have been a great episode to watch!
    Almost too ridiculous to believe... 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, let's try it round the other way around. 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,

    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 our 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 paint our twangers couldn't we?"

    George: "Let's sing that plucking song."

    Bungle: "Rod and Roger can get their instruments out and Jane has got two lovely Maracas."

    Singers Rod, Roger and Jane enter.

    Rod: "We could hear you all banging away."

    Roger: "Banging can be fun."

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

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

    Geoffrey: "Never mind Roger, let sing the plucking song, come on

    everybody get your instruments out."

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

    Jane: "Oh no Rod, I was blowing a lot with Roger last night. But would you

    like to play with my maracas?"

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

    Bungle: "Yes, it doesn't matter what size your 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 bounce your balls at the same time. If you haven't got any balls,

    ask a friend if you can play with his. Now, let's all sing the plucking song."

    Everyone in studio: "Pluck, pluck, pluck away, we're going to pluck all day today."

    "Pluck, pluck, pluck away, we're going to pluck all day."

    Geoffrey (to viewers): " It's time for us all to go now, but don't forget to

    get your twangers out and play with your balls." "See you soon. Bye."

    Many childrens' TV shows in the 1950's were performed "live" in the studio. Legend has it, that on Soupy Sales' LAST performance for children, he said to a group of six year olds:

    "Hey kids - how about a riddle? What word begins with an F and ends with UCK?" A little girl then shouted out the word that most adults might think is the correct answer. But, Soupy responded "No, I'm sorry...but the answer I was looking for is FIRETRUCK".

    And, thus ended Soupy's career in "live" childrens' television.

    I've got to admit, whoever wrote that is pretty damn clever.
