Just watching Hacker Time with my lad - brilliant.
so I'm going with Elmo.
I really want to see this
Like I said I watched that the other day, it's great.
Gordon The Gopher
Looks like one of my girlfriend's dogs actually
They're currently repeating some old Dick n Dom in Da Bungalow: so much good ad-lib stuff on there (+ "Bogeys!!" obvs). And Horrible Histories is the best sketch show on TV.
Horrible Histories is great though.
I say this as an adult with no children...
NOT by D&D themselves. It's the guy who plays various character roles (currently he's in the Direct Line ads with Chris Addison)
I wouldn't know as I've always given their stuff a wide berth
Always thought they were trying too hard to be the next Ant n Dec
Either The Count or Elmo as my favourite
They fall under my Muppet/Henson umbrella though. Jim Henson was a great great man.
I've got a sweep, and Ive done quite a few puppet shows with him in, hes a great and useful character that can always liven it up because you can get into his character and make him do things kids find hilarious (sooty in himself is boring) but Sue is a great nag and counterpart to sweep. (the best thing you can do with sooty is that whole whispering thing and turn that into part of the comedy (I did one where I kept mishearing him, like Soo is dancing and sooty is looking at her, around and sooty whispers to me and I repeat his words to the kids, but Ive obviously misheard so i say variously 'You want to dance in the loo?' 'you want to dance with poo?' etc.
SO yes I really love sooty soo and sweep.
Oh puppets that can grab kids noses are great too, I got a crow which has flown over other puppets and 'crowned' them with a little unpleasent present, kids love that, and its a useful sort of thing to have for when you pause in inspiration.
Hand puppets are the best.
I really want a badger (as in bodger and badger)
No-one I ask in 'real life' has ever heard of these two.
Makes me wonder if I was actually born an indie bellend and Gordon T Gopher was too mainstream for me.
