Hey Hey It's Thursday!



Those of you not native to these fair Antipodean shores quite likely won't have seen
Hey Hey It's Saturday! It was an enormously popular variety show, hosted by a man and an ostrich puppet and it gave us wonders like this...


Years of "exposure" does things to the mind and today's stylings from Barks and The Kiwi quite possibly reflect that. Is this a good thing? I'll let you be the judge....

Cheers,
Millsy

  4. I thought it was an emu he was molesting, rather than an ostrich (assuming you mean Rod Hull)

    1. This was a couple of years after Rod Hull left these shores with Emu - Channel 9 got a replacement, Ozzie Ostrich, who traded quips with the host of 'Hey Hey', Daryl Somers.
