Default Rainbow rememberance

I thought this was a clip from a comedy show rather than a real episode; can anyone remember?

Ah yes! The legendary "Rainbow Plucking Orgy". It wasn't actually made for broadcast, but was written by Roy Skelton (the voice of George & Zippy) for a Xmas Thames TV bloopers tape. It's still incredibly funny though

Sorry guys

Here is a posting on a website dedicate to the show.

RUDE RAINBOW?

We're often asked about the so called rude Rainbow, clips of which have been shown on the Channel Four programmes, TV Unzipped and TV Offal. Although often introduced as the unaired pilot, this episode was actually specially made by the team at Thames Television. Geoffrey Hayes told us, "The VT department of each ITV company, every Christmas had a competition to enter all the outtakes from their particular companies programme out put, and see which ones were the funniest. But ours wasn’t an outtake, we specially did it. It was specially scripted and we did it and I never saw it! We did it and Thames won it, but what they actually won, I don’t know. But I never saw the video. I can’t remember much about it except for Zippy with a banana."

Here is the website, and you can go check it out for yourself. http://www.rainbow.web.com/

That is really funny!

I'm sure it wasn't broadcast though, however, that era was the golden era of sexual inuendo, with Captain Pugwash (and Seaman Staines), and all the rest of the cracked out on LSD 70's shows, like the Magic Roundabout I remeber them all from my pre teen days!

It may amuse you (it did me) to know that in the original French version of The Magic Roundabout, Dougal was actually called Pollux.
