In 1979, the cast and crew of Rainbow made a special exclusive sketch for the Thames TV staff Christmas tape, sometimes referred to as the "Twangers" episode. This show featured plenty of deliberate sexual innuendo (beginning with Zippy peeling a banana, saying "One skin, two skin, three skin, four..." before being interrupted), and never shown at the time (as it was never intended to be screened to the general public.) It also included Geoffrey convincing the viewers to play with their balls, but if they didn't have any balls, they could ask a friend and play with his. Jane also claimed that she was banging with Rod and Roger. Soon, Zippy asked them to stop suggesting whether to play with a blowing tube and maracas, so they could start singing the 'Plucking Song'.

The clip became famous after being aired on Victor Lewis-Smith's Channel 4 programme TV Offal (1997) and was jokingly referred to as "the pilot episode", which it clearly wasn't as Geoffrey Hayes was a presenter at the time. The clip has become widely-spread, first in emails as an attachment and later via online video websites such as YouTube. This has led to many erroneous claims that the episode was publicly broadcast as a regular episode.

TV Offal also broadcast some very risqué material featuring members of the cast as guests on a variety show hosted by comedian Jim Davidson in the 1980s; the sketch in question, which featured former children's TV presenter Tommy Boyd, asking a question about Adam and Eve. Boyd and Davidson used some profanities in the sketch, along with some innuendo from George (presumably again not intended for broadcast like the above), but contained one particularly shocking moment when Zippy exclaimed to Geoffrey an expletive phrase quite out of character from his children's television persona. This sketch would in all likelihood have been filmed during rehearsals.

Comedian Bobby Davro also parodied Rainbow as a comedy sketch in his own TV series in the early-1990s, playing the part of Geoffrey alongside exaggerated versions of Bungle and the puppets, which contained some mild sexual innuendo. Davro had appeared in a regular edition of the show, in which he performed impressions of the characters in front of them.

While never explicitly adult, most interviews featuring Zippy and George since the show's demise commonly portray them as somewhat more edgy in terms of personality. For example, in an episode of SMTV Live they call Bungle an "Idiotic, blundering creature."

Personally, I don't think so.

It's analogous to a Judge making jokes about being on the take or a surgeon joking about being high while in surgery...

There is something wrong with that kind of humor, imo.

It was a simple parody.
It was never aired to the general public, let alone an audience of minors.

It's humour, nothing more, nothing less!

Are presenters of childrens entertainment programmes not allowed to indulge in adult humour off camera?

Apparently you missed my point.


There is something very wrong with people whose job it is to work with children, making sexual jokes concerning chilldren.


It's irrelevant to me that it never aired.

Honestly, I don't get it.

Why are sexual jokes INVOLVING children funny under any circumstance?

Sorry but where are the children involved with these jokes? Where? No children in the video and this video was NOT MADE for children. As far as I can see the only children involved apear to be in your imagination.

Where is your article on Disney, Pixar and the various other companies that routinely sell sex to kids?! (Does that not count because you didnt notice it?)

This episode never aired, no children were involved and it was a joke.,

If you want to see sexual innuendo, what about Captain Pugwash?

uk.answers.yahoo.com...

Which according to some was not as rude as some people tend to claim, check the above link.

But yes, for all you teeth-grinding 'think of the children' mob, this episode was never aired, so put down your torches and return to your routines.

I always laugh at this, hilarious bit of fun.

And not to sound rude or anything but loam and mamabeth don't seem to have a sense of humour at all. Especially loam, I've seen a few posts about funny stuff like this and he/she has gone on to poo-poo it as inherently bad and not right. Get a life, take a step outside the house, interact with other people in the real world.

It's like the kids movies the last 20 years who have a target audience of children but throw in some adult humour that the kids wouldn't understand just to amuse the parents and adults who go to see it, stop them being bored. Shrek being a main example off the top of my head.

Sometimes, I swear I come from an alternate universe....


Let's begin with EACH of you, who apparently have a serious reading comprehension issue or lack serious vocabulary skills.


I did not say children were *in* the video or that the video was shown *to* children.

What I did say is the following:

So my point was against 'humor' where the CONTENT involves children and sex.

Plain and simple.

I don't find that EVER funny, and I give a rat's ass what conclusions you draw from that regarding my sense of humor.


If there is any problem here, it's your failure to recognize why this is dangerous stuff for people to socially accept.

This is an entirely different concept. Adult humor does not necessarily mean sexual humor concerning children. They are entirely different universes.
