which one had the clown scrolling the credits? i always thought that was good.
 
and u always thought it was because of the cold water.
 
are they pickled onion flavour? i like those best. he'll be alright as long as he keeps them away from seals or dolphins.

Damn good question. I think it was Camberwick Green but I could be wrong. I'd check but for some unfathomable reason it's not on the Beeb's sprog TV schedule.
 
But it's not cold inside the wetsuit ...
 
No, they are Flat Eric flavoured. Are you saying that you'd be tempted? Now you can see why he lives in fear of being nibbled by people with the munchies.

http://www.t-web.co.uk/trumpcam.htm how about this!

Unfortunately it doesn't say what happens at the end of Camberwick green, but I think you're right. seems all three are mixed up now.

Kids these days don't know what they're missing..
 
exactly. they wear wetsuits to protect themselves from nibbles, not the cold water as previously thought.
 
I am only tempted by pickled onion flavoured monster munch, not by stuffed puds which would taste of material and kapoc. If he keeps his hands vaguely dirty, he should be fine.

Pretty funky.
 
And so essential. No wonder today's yoof are the bunch of free-loading, brain-dead slobs they are without proper guidance. I learned all I needed to know in life from Trumpton, Camberwick Green and Chigley. Perhaps I could persuade t'Castle to introduce a policy of having all the employees come out for a dance at the end of the working day! All together now ..... time flies by when you're the driver of a train, etc.
 
I wouldn't have thought any self-respecting seal would want to nibble any part of a wetsuit given what a lot of surfers do in them!
 
But in badly lit (i.e. Sloop) conditions and while under the affluence of incohol you might take a bite before realising your mistake. That's what FE is worried about.

Absolutely. Play School was damn useful too. I used to love it when they filmed a factory and showed you how biscuits were made. Far more useful than a fictional cartoon creature pretending to call up another.
 
Urgh.
 
I can see his point but he need not worry about me. you won't approve of this but i very rarely get to a point where i might think his hands were bar snacks, i don't like having a wizzy head. The morning after i can cope with, it's the present evening i have problems with.
 
ps On that thought, i have currently got a wizzy head, but it's not alcohol induced. I sometimes get a viral infection of the balance thingies instead of a cold. Whilst i don't get the drippy nose thing, i can't walk in a straight line and feel like i'm going to fall off my chair; and without the joy of wine first!! So if my writing falls of the page......

Well, it certainly taught me a lot about windows ...
 
Exactement.
 
Honestly! First Helling and now you. I'm starting to feel like I've been captured by the Temperance Union! How can you possibly cope with life without constantly getting shlobbleobble so that you don't have to cope with life?
 
See? Now if you'd quaffed copious amounts last night you'd still be in the same condition today but at least you'd have had a good time in the process. FE says he'd come and visit you with a bunch of grapes but he's afraid that in your delirium ... !

round, square and arch, and it was amazing what was through them!
 
Ha! a pillow around the head is often a favourite. i do have the odd snifter to calm the nerves and a couple or four glasses of wine with a meal, i just don't do falling down - i bruise easily!
 
The only thing he would be in danger of is being cuddled to within an inch of his life. Having a large collection of cuddly peeps myself, i do know how to look after them.

Ironic when you consider how much happiness and entertainment was generated by Play School's windows and how much misery and suffering has been generated by Bill Goats' windows!
 
Too true. Fortunately I have the RT to keep a constant supply of fresh pillows in the fridge when I am feverish. Does Paul (or the katz) do the same for you? Also, if you lie down before commencing the quaffing you avoid the bruises. Believe me, I've ..... er ..... heard the rumours.
 
Well, why didn't take the chance when you were down in the Slurp? Instead he had to put up with being molested by Suzie the barvamp.

Not quite the same though, fr'instance Play Skool never said Goodbye by saying Hello and they never disappeared for no reason and made you turn of the tv to bring them back!
 
No he (or they) doesn't (or don't). I like to keep my pillow where i know where it is. Imagine the annoyance when slipping upstairs for a clandestine snuggle only to find someone's stuck yer pillow in the fridge!!
I'll try that next time i forget myself. Place plenty of booze on the coffee table to avoid having to get up for more and see how much i can drink before i start singing the theme tune to Play Away.
 
Silly me! Mind you, i didn't see him there for a long time, he was hidden behind your Jellyness. He was only brought to my attention when you risked breaking your camera. And anyway it would have been a bit forward on a first meeting - you wouldn't have liked it would you.....

Nor, if I remember rightly, did it make Brian Cant the richest man in the solar system. If only Humpty & co had had the foresight to get a trademark/copyright on the windows before Bile Gates launched his evil empire.
 
But I love a freshly fridged pillow. If only someone could invent bedware that keeps you warm while remaining pleasantly cool at the same time.
 
Can remember the tune but not many of the lyrics. Playaway didn't do much for me to be honest. I suppose I was always an escapist. Give me Ivor The Engine, Clangers (natch), Mary Mungo & Midge, etc. [In case you think I only "reminisce in the past", I would include the Simpsons but everyone knows that that is a fly-on-the-wall documentary and not kids' fantasy]. I saw, en passant, that they are doing/have done a re-make (what else would our current crop of creative talent come up with?) of Carrie's War. Why? The sprog du jour will just ignore it as a very dull sci-fi programme for all the relevance it has to their mobile phone world of luxury. 
 
He wasn't hiding, he's just shy (and nervous in pubs for reasons aforementioned). Although in fairness to you, it's difficult to see the sun/sky/stars if I'm in your line of sight. What, I wouldn't have liked it if you'd cuddled him or I wouldn't have liked it if I'd been him and you'd cuddled me!

Brian Cant mainly did Play Away didn't he? Most of the Play School presenters didn't get rich.
 
But who wants a fridged pillow? Particularly in the morning when it all gets too hot, but you want to stay there.
 
I can't remember the lyrics either. I thought Ivor was great. Don't forget Crystal Tips and Alistaire, Hector's House, The Herbs..
 
I was inferring that you may not have liked being cuddled on our first meeting.

Methinks you are right. On the other mandible, Brian Cant did a lot of voice-overs for things like Trumpton, Camberwick Green, Chigley and ...... ooh, all sorts. As a child the appearance of Brain Cant in a sprog prog was better than an appearance by god. You knew you were going to be entertained, soothed and made happy by Brian Cant. Based on my, my RC and my Jewish friends of the same epoch, experience you never knew where you were with god. Mainly he seemed to be speaking through the mouths of Adult Dictators. Which didn't blow my trumpet. Give me a theme and room to dream ....
 
Maybe that's where you get BC and AD from.
 
Please don't torment me further. I admit it. I'm a useless, cack-handed fool. I have always tended to ignore those "100 greatest" progs but C4 (I think) did a 100 Greatest Sprog Progs ..... and I taped it ..... and it had Jamie Theakston in it but he hammed it up and was actually quite funny ..... and it was full with gorgeous gobbets of all that was tasty and nutritious for sprogs of yesteryear ..... and I ..... yes, I, ....., and I can't even blame this one on the RT ..... I ..... taped something irrelevant over it in a moment of madness.
 
If I had any, I'd still be kicking myself (it's actually quite difficult to do) in the youknowwhats!
