Storyline

Two pigs run a TV station - but these ones are puppets. Most of the singing and dancing is done by other puppets, but they were joined by guest stars like Frank Sinatra , 'Tom Jones' and Harry Secombe , as well as The Beatles, (who were regularly parioed by the puppet bird group "The Beakles"). Not great entertainment, but then I'm not 5 years old anymore. Written by Garryq

Early String Puppetry
29 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Yes, well; I've given it 6-stars because the programme should be taken in context with its vintage. In truth; it was crap.

P & P were a couple stylised little pigs that did very little but jog about and roll their eyes. They stood on hind-legs like extras from 'Animal Farm' and wore humanising clothes and hats. I think they were berets. There were a number of other equally lethargic creatures as well. The series as I remember it was titled 'Pinky & Perky's Pop Parade', and original single music tracks were played as a backing to which the various creatures mimed. It was a back-door access to the 'Top 20'. You didn't so much as watch it, as listen to it.

Without the pop music I don't think the programme contained a particle of entertainment even for 1957. Unless you were a tot.

Strangely, it carried on in one guise or another for over 20 years, so clearly some people didn't agree with me. I sentence them to watch it through eternity, with the cheesiest rock anthems ever written.

Their plaudits certainly haven't overflowed onto this website.
