Yes Fruit Cake mentioned something which had me off to You Tube to look for a Zig and Zag clip. Never mind getting home by 6pm on Sunday night to watch the music show Countdown as our Prime Minister Gorton did at that time, in earlier days, faster faster Pop. We want to watch Zig and Zag.
Even as a kid, I realised there was some adult stuff happening between Zig and Zag, not anything rude, but just some adult speech between them even though they were performing for kids. In my memory, they were brilliant. Info is mix of what I remember and what Wikpedia says. How sad that Zig, Jack Perry, was convicted of multiple sexual assaults on his grand daughter. Zag, Doug McKenzie died in 2004. It is not known if Perry is still alive.
Their catch call was 'there will be noooooooooooo trouble', and of course there always was, like the time they dropped a coconut on Melbourne's King Street Bridge and broke the bridge. The bridge did actually break, but it wasn't cause by a dropped coconut, more like deficient engineering.
This is a clip from I guess 1975 when colour television began broadcasting in Australia, also featuring Happy Hammond. As far as I recall, Peters Ice Cream always sponsored the show.
If you would to wallow a little longer in the trough of nostalgia, try this one. Note, famous bearded media resident in our building has also made accusations against the late Roy Lyons.
