    This page was linked by the "Razzies" website. It's an old children's show from the 70's/80's called "Rainbow", (sounds like it's Australian, but there are several DVD's available from Amazon's UK site) and while the show is aimed at very young children, the double entendre in this clip has to be heard to be believed!

    It's British I think, vaguely recall watching it as a child. Not that clip, though... [​IMG]

    "Banging can be fun!"

    Those wacky Brits. [​IMG]

    Funny stuff, like a lost sketch for the Benny Hill show.

    Here's a direct link to the video. (.swf file 2.33mb)

    Crazy! I only thought those kinds of things were done in SNL sketches!

    Many thanks for this link - I'd heard of this spoof but never seen it. To be honest, it wasn't that far removed from a normal episode of Rainbow, which could be surreal at times.

    The nearest Brit children's TV came to genuine double entendres was the utterances of a presenter on Blue Peter. For those as don't know, Blue Peter is one of Britain's most treasured institutions - a thrice-weekly magazine programme for kids which has been going for about forty years. Heck, ever our Queen has been a guest on it. Anyway, one of the presenters used to have a habit of inserting deliberate double entendres into the (live) broadcasts. The one every child remembers is when after a (perfectly innocent) film on bird watching he commented 'what a great pair of tits', but there were plenty of others.

    And to think you poor deprived folks on the other side of the Herring Pond had to make do with Sesame Street. [​IMG]
