Brian Cant on Play Away "I am a football team. I am a football team - WHAT football team am I ?" Points to hip and holds light switch (Ipswich of course) Kid shouts from the audience...

"Arsenal !"

Some of the best comedy gold was on kid's TV and still is. Good clean fun, well, usually.

RIP Brian - with all these talented and beautiful people dropping like flies you can understand why I'm bricking myself.

    RIP indeed - part of my childhood, and a fondly remembered one at that, a true gentleman.

    Re the comedy gold, I have never forgotten the moment Simon Groom said "what a beautiful pair of knockers" on Blue Peter.

    Same here, it was Playschool for me. The innocent days of television, or the days of innocent television.

    Did you see the Play School out take where the presenter lost it with Humpty (kept falling over) and kicked all the toys around shouting "How can I be expected to work with these amateurs !" ?

    Hahah no didn't see that! I've seen some bloopers, but thankfully not when I was a child. My world would have been shattered.

    Or Major Johnny Cradock who was the foil to Fanny Cradock (the TV cook) who said, "I hope all your doughnuts turn out like Fanny's !".

    I went to see Richard Digence the other night and he revealed that it was he who invented the myth of "seaman Stains" and "Roger the cabin boy", etc. in Captain Pugwash. Apparently he got sued for it. He was made to give an out-of-court settlement to the RNLI, which chafed with him, because he lives in Wiltshire so no sea anywhere near him

    One of my colleagues claimed to have wrecked the Blue Peter Garden.
