Nonsense but funny children's TV show
15 May 2006 | by (birmingham, england) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this show on British TV when I was 8 and thought it fantastic. Apart from the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo I seem to remember characters like The Dong with the Luminous Nose

and The Jumblies and Mr and Mrs Discobbolos and The Pobble who has no toes? and also a Quangle-Wangle Quee! I also remember features like "and now a word from our sponsors" and someone

would say "Zephyr" or such like.

Or "earthworms get lost!" This would have been the forerunner of "tiswas",Monty Python and even Sesame Street's occasional nonsense. I remember this from nearly 40 years ago but nobody else seems to.
