For those of you among us who remember this kiddys classic.
This is almost too ridiculous to believe... This is taken from an original Rainbow script and there's no way this could have been done by accident.
Innuendo all the way:
Script Run (all internal studio)
The scene opens with Zippy peeling a banana.....
Zippy: " One skin, two skin, three skin, four - "
George [interrupting Zippy mid-count]: " 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 Other way. 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."
If only the kids understood !!

Randall, british tv is renouned for childrens programs with sexual and drug related content.
some examples:
Captain Pugwash - his best mate was called Master Bates (You can guess what Pug is slang for)
TeleTubbies - Favorite food tubby toast which has an uncanny resemblance to Ectasy tablets.
Bill and Ben - the flowerpot men, their only intelligible word was "weed"
Noddy - I seem to remember they remade some episodes because he ended up in bed with Big-Ears and there were compliants that, the imagery promoted homosexuality.
Magic Roundabout - I would not even know where to start with that one.
Having said this, I as a child watched these programs in complete innocence and it was until I became an adult and viewed repeats of these progams that I understood the hidden inuendo.
For those amongst us who thought that the word "DOH" became popular after the arrival of Homer Simpson, I have one word Crackerjack

Nigel, I hope it is from a real show, and not made up. But if it was made up, they have a great writing ability.
