'Disappointed from Cavan' writes...

Busy March? It's coming in and like a lion and will go out like a herd of elephants as far as workload for lickle Terence is concerned, but I've a day off today - an oasis of calm in the storm - and now find to my dismay that it is already ruined, entirely.

I was sitting, patient and expectant in front of the TV, waiting for my favourite show to start, and now I'm not a happy man.

What I want to know is this: What heedless fucker decided to take the seminal educational programme, Bananas in Pyjamas, off the air? For fucks sake people, Bananas in Pyjamas is a stone cold classic of the genre! It's great to watch and it's even funny just to say it, it ticks all the boxes for 32-year-olds looking in of a weekday morning and I can't fathom why faceless TV fat cats would deprive me of one of the few things I enjoy on the box these days. And they leave shite like Tellytubbies on the air and it hasn't even got any fruit in it! Two bananas of a morning is two down out of your five a day, yis hoors, ever think of that before reefing it out of the schedules?

So now I'm sitting here on my day off (I got one, as in singular), looking at Sylvester and Tweety like I've quantum leaped back 25 years. Not doing it for me at all, despite the, I admit grudgingly, somewhat engaging layers of subtle subtexts, recurring imagery and multi-dimensional plots. Balamory is on there at the moment however and it's wrecking me head altogether because it's trippy and disturbing in a Scottish type of way.

I could handle a bit of Bear in the Big Blue House but no sign of him either. So, where's me bananas? The ones in pyjamas? They come down the stairs? In pairs? Chase teddy bears, catch them unawares?

Now, listen, I understand that pyjama wearing in daytime has recently become much maligned, because of POW-looking skanger burds from the flats roaming the streets in their nightwear, but think about it, maybe this is an act of solidarity with their put upon banana brethren? Maybe they miss them too? For truly, Bananas in Pyjamas speak to all classes and creeds you know, they transcend boundaries and have life lessons for us all.

It's rumoured too, that such is their universal popularity, Channel 4 wanted them to appear in Skins as love interests for Ardal O'Hanlon's character but the Bananas in Pyjamas know their demographic and don't do drugs or porn or drink vodka.

Have a look at this full episode if you've time and you'll see what I mean. They come across a bit hapless and dim alright but they just want you to think that, they're fiendishly clever at the back of it all. Like big yellow Columbos in PJs.

Is anyone with me here?

Hrrrmph. Those TV flash harries have probably replaced them with some new fangled, sexed up version. Zucchini in Bikinis or something.

Bastards!

28 moos and woofs:

Radge said...

Off your meds (as the Americans call them)?

Susan said...

I always found dancing bananas disturbing; I could never watch it. On the other hand, I'm from the Tweetybird generation, so maybe I just don't get it? I like Bear, just can't stand a single one of his friends. I'd step on that damn Tutter at half a chance.

Anyhow, shouldn't you be making arrangements to move to California, now that Herself is on the way to LA? If you're not, good luck with the workload and the Teletubbies.

Terence McDanger said...

I stopped taking them ages ago Radge, when the security elephant under my bed started taking bazooka lessons, I realised I just didn't need them any more.

Susan I read that alright about Caroline heading for LA, but hadn't the heart to write another post about her lest ye all get bored.
Suffice to say it might just be a little cover story she put out there to throw the media off the scent after my expose of last week.

Our love will reach across the miles in any case.

Red Leeroy said...

"Our love will reach across the miles in any case" - Love missile F1-11?

As for these bananas, I am kinda fearful, but I booked a day off anyway and am gonna head into town and grab the box set, then swing by Sheriffer on my way home for a red eye.

Radge said...

Red - Call me. We'll watch them together. Sorry about Caroline, Terence. She chose me. Get over it. Come and visit though.

Terence McDanger said...

Red, the extras in the box set are well worth the dosh. The Miami Vice episode where our heroic duo bust a Cuban drug cartel - Bananas in Havana - is a fucking stonker.

Radge, that's just fantasy. Wait until you hear the explosive audio interview I have of Ms. Morahan where she openly admits her love for me. That'll settle ya!

hope said...

You think maybe if you get the Bananas a Super Hero costume things would get better? :)

Had to go to work before viewing the entire episode but it made me wonder...what happened to Susan's movie about Gnomes?

Perhaps your Beloved has gone to Beverly Hills to pick out her china pattern. :p

Kath Lockett said...

Ah yes, the Bananas are a proud Aussie export, that they are and rightly so. You can keep the rat though and the gay teddy bear Morgan.

Love the Bear, especially when he sniffs the camera. I agree with Susan and also loathe his buddies. Bear should be running his own chat show - surely you could draft up a script and send it to his agent, Terence?

Baino said...

Sorry, proud Aussies or not, they're gay and they look like condoms filled with custard . .there I said it . . .you can throw rotten things at me now.

Terence McDanger said...

Hope, I still can't get that to work. I'm sorry about this, I know you're mad to see me in a pair of tights.

Kath, I have five episodes and a TVM script. It's where he goes undercover and investigates drug dealing at a gay bar. Bear in the Big Blue Oyster Club I'm calling it.

Comment of the day: Condoms filled with custard! Bwahahahaha!

narocroc said...

The "Zucchini in Bikinis" made it all worthwhile!

hope said...

I must see the "tights" picture before your new Beloved takes you off the market. ;)

Here's what I discovered when I went to that site. Evidently it's made for larger screens than mine. {Please keep that joke to yourself...my ego can't take it.} When I got mad and finally hit F11 on my keyboard, it opened up to show me that there is a red arrow on the lower right hand corner to "get started". Couldn't see it until I used full screen mode.

Does that help? Because I really am interested to see if you choose "wings" with your outfit or not. :)

"....because it's trippy and disturbing in a Scottish type of way."



Racist!

kiki said...

dude, you ever seen Monkey Magic? that shit was ace

Holemaster said...

Aubergines in jeans?

Terence McDanger said...

Tsk, tsk, I've been neglecting my commentators.

Narocroc, was the rest of it that shite???!!!

Adullamite, I knew that'd flush you out of hiding, you lurker!

Kiki, all's I can say is "Pig-say! Pig-say!" Sigh, such enjoyable crap that.

Holemaster, there's no point, I've racked my brains trying to think of another fruit and another item of clothing, but nope...nothing doing. Nice effort all the same though!

The Giants will lean on rookie Andre Williams for at least Nike Air Max 90 one more week in New York's backfield.


Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reported Saturday that Rashad Jennings is not traveling with the team to Nike Free Run Seattle because of the knee injury that has shelved the veteran running back since Week 6. Officially listed as doubtful, Jennings' absence comes as no great suprise.

Also for Big Blue, defensive tackle wholesale jerseys shop Cullen Jenkins, cornerback Zack Bowman and pass rusher Mathias Kiwanuka are all questionable for Sunday's showdown with the Seahawks.

After showing tantalizing promise in the preseason, Williams has struggled of late in New York's backfield. The rookie hasn't topped four yards per carry in a game since Week 4 and spit out just 22 yards off Nike Roshe Run 12 attempts in Monday night's loss to the Colts. The Giants NFL Jerseys saw better production from second-year runner Michael Cox and the unkillable Peyton Hillis.

After throwing an outrageous 52 passes in the Indy defeat, new nike nfl jerseys Eli Manning is a candidate to take to the skies again if New York's running cheap sale jerseys game remains NFL Jerseys Store stuck in neutral against Seattle.
