    At some shitty pub quiz in a shitty pub in shitty Bognor compered by a shitty barman, they insisted that this character was called Fingerbob.

    I complained till I was blue in the face that the show was Fingerbobs but the character was Fingermouse. Oh no, he insisted, with a smarmy, punch-magnet smile, thatís Fingerbob.

    Twenty years ago. Still fuming....
    I used to think that the guy with the beard had arms that extended at will because he wasn't shown and yet the animals he controlled could travel great distances!

      He was there from the start in 1974 although in the London Weekend catchment area we only got the last three series and for the very last only Sally James remained of the best-remembered line-up. The rest decamped to O.T.T: the late-night version of Tiswas.

      I believe you all here in Southern TV territory continued with The Saturday Banana for an extra year and only got the last two series of Tiswas, so only one series of Tarrant, Carolgees, Gorman etc. I actually preferred The Saturday Banana with an oddly bad-tempered Bill Oddie in charge and Metal Mickey as co-host.

      Amazing how regional ITV was pre-1982, often showing different programmes even in peak-time.

      I remember Lenny Henry saying that he found O.T.T more relaxing than Tiswas, because on Tiswas there was always the risk of saying something too rude and getting into trouble, whereas on O.T.T it would've been ok. Ironically, his turns on O.T.T were mostly kiddie-friendly anyway, with his characters Algernon, David Bellamy, the "Katanga" guy, and Trevor McDonut doing very similar material.

      As a kid I used to also love Laurel & Hardy & Harold Lloyd.
      Likewise. I think they used to be on BBC2 in some late afternoon/early evening slot, perfect timing to take in with my dinner on my lap.

      Then there was MONKEY, which I seem to remember was always on Friday at about 6pm, giving the added boost that it was the start of the weekend.

      Spot on! Yes, it was about 6pm I think for the blank & white shows. I remember they did Will Hay films too - and like you, it was tea time viewing.

      And I was just thinking about Monkey too - probably utter crap if I watched it now, but it was amazing at the time.

      And Sally James started showing off her physical attributes... She and Jenny Hanley made my early teenage years TV watching very enjoyable.
