Just saw an episode of it on YouTube and thought Geoffrey was much more attractive than I remembered. Aibu?

Periwonkle Sun 22-Sep-13 19:18:21

He shone brightly for a time, though Viva. Sigh.

He shone Up above the trees and houses Periwonkle.

He's probably doing alternative comedy gigs at student venues now (like Keith Harris)

Oh dear oh dear

Geoffry is now a taxi driver apparently.....by all accounts he squandered his money after Rainbow.

<Ponders the hedonistic lifestyle he led with George, Zippy and Bungle>

As for Rod, Jane and Freddy ....a contributor to a forum suggested that they became swingers in Derbyshire and that Bungle also occasionally did a turn there. Don't think the contributor was being entirely serious grin

My mother thought Rainbow was common (it was on ITV, wasn't it?) so I used to watch ail at other people's houses.

Periwonkle Sun 22-Sep-13 19:46:09

It was itv you are right. Oo Geoffrey.

Itsjustapuppet Sun 22-Sep-13 20:07:42

It was just one msn who did the voices of Zippy and George. He could just alternate the two seamlessly.

MrsBungle Sun 22-Sep-13 20:12:17

Rod Jane and Freddy did swap around. I also heard about the swinging. Apparently Freddy is eccentric and is in the music business and v happy.?

SpottyDottie Sun 22-Sep-13 20:14:03

Jane was married to Rod but has been with Freddy was years now.

Nooooooo

YUBVU

CustardOmlet Sun 22-Sep-13 20:36:12

My mum also disapproved of itv, plus Zippy used to scare the shit out of me, too manic and unpredictable!

Clawdy Sun 22-Sep-13 20:39:42

Remember the rude version of Rainbow on Youtube,it was hilarious,don't know if it's still on! And Jane always seemed a bit of a goody-two-shoes! Not in that...!!

JohnSnowsTie Sun 22-Sep-13 20:50:29

Oh my God, when you said Geoffrey I had in mind the pink hippo thing! shock

Thepowerof3 Sun 22-Sep-13 20:50:33

grin Manipulative bastard! I recently watched an episode where Bungle was playing with bricks and wouldn't let Zippy play as he is a bit manic, Geoffrey told Zippy to find something else to play so he decided to play at being a fisherman swinging his rod around right next to bungles tower of bricks knocking them over and upsetting Bungle no end

Periwonkle Sun 22-Sep-13 20:58:34

John snow - not George, Geoffrey. Thepowerofthree, that was a funny episode too.

WaitMonkey Sun 22-Sep-13 21:02:54

shock shock shock shock shock shock shock shock shock shock shock

JakeBullet Sun 22-Sep-13 21:03:40

The chap who did Bungle was bound over to keep the peace in 2001 after a road rage incident. Not such a cuddly bear after all grin

Elsiequadrille Sun 22-Sep-13 21:06:43

Geoffrey was lovely, but not in that way!

MacaYoniandCheese Sun 22-Sep-13 21:06:53

Are you feeling alright, OP? grin.

Elsiequadrille Sun 22-Sep-13 21:07:33

Bungle always seemed so reasonable.

Thepowerof3 Sun 22-Sep-13 21:17:44

He was a tell tale

butterflyroom Sun 22-Sep-13 21:26:14

Thank you so much. Great thread! grin

Thepowerof3 Sun 22-Sep-13 21:34:35

Apparently during the roads rage incident he 'launched a foul mouthed tirade that would make Zippy blush' and the journalist reporting felt it necessary to point out he that he wor a 'sober grey suit instead of his trademark furry one' to court
