Rainbow

just got this mail....quite funny

RAINBOW SCRIPT
For those of you who are far too young to remember the children's TV programme "Rainbow", this may be a little lost on you......and you are also probably some sort of social defect if you have never seen the
show because it is soooo cool and yes also very very gay, but that was all part of that 80's charm. I don't remember this one in particular but it must have been a great episode....
>
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. How they ever did this with a
straight face I'll never know...and who was the dumb shit who let this through BBC censorship anyway?!?!...some sort of hermit virgin I imagine who didn't get the irony of maracas, pegs and twangers. i hope someone got fired for this blunder...
>
> 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, lets try it round the Otherway. 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

> Bungle: " Yes, and we can play with our twangers as well."
> Geoffrey (to camera) Have you seen Bungles twanger? Zippy:" Oh I
have, I

> 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

>
> Singers Rod, Freddy and Jane enter. (This is unbelievable!!)
>
> 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 ( looking sad ) " Yes, but it broke my plucking instrument."

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

> Jane: " Oh no, I was banging away with Freddy last night. But would

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

> Zippy;" I've got a big red one."
> George: " I've only got a tiny twanger. But it works well and I

> Geoffrey (to viewers) " Well, have you got your twangers out? And

    i was watching a Tweenies video the other day with my little girl and there was quite a bit on innuendo in that...the best being Max telling the audience to 'get your clocks out! has everybody got their clocks in their hands'

    ah well at least it makes it amusing for the parents as well as the kiddies :)

    LMFTO!!!!

    Candy - I've heard that script actually on a website (listened to it I mean) I'm sure it was a pilot episode or a special episode or something! Too funny though, I'm the biggest Rainbow addict :D

    ToD I think your right. I knew it was familiar. I think it was an episode that was filmed but never seendue to the innuendo. Deemed unsuitable for viewing. Give me some time and I'll track it down on the web. *cracks fingers and gets ready for some frantic web searching*

    Found plenty of sites posting the script but no actual footage. I've sent the BBC (it was on the BBC wasn't it) asking them to verify if this is real script or one of them Urban Myths.

    Bugger. Your correct. Well someone at BBC will be reading some E-mail about dodgy Rainbow scripts and not have a clue what I'm going on about.

    then this works for every thing we hear and see

    so perhaps we need to bring the censors back after all.

    and people have been gay long before TV even existed, not to mention Rainbow

    Yeah Rainbow was made by Thames Television, I never watched Children's BBC as a kid and I watched Rainbow so therefore it was on Thames! I think this episode wasn't shown I think it was what's known as a "Christmas tape" - every Christmas TV stations make video tapes of all the cock ups of the year and sometimes they create special scenes which they play at the Christmas party, I think that some newsroom somewhere created a sketch with the newsreaders reading the news in costume and just generally mouthing off about the news stories. :lol:
