Pinky & Perky

It’s always amazing to me to discover all sorts of lost gems on YouTube. My latest discovery is an old BBC show called Pinky & Perky which features two singing pig puppets that sound quite a bit like Alvin and the Chipmunks. The show ran from 1957 to the early 1970’s on British television and featured cover versions of many pop songs of the day. And as with any kids show there was a ton of merchandise associated with Pinky & Perky, everything from toys to books to records.

The following clip features host Jimmy Thomson (who also had a few roles in various episodes of the Benny Hill Show):
