Do they even have first names? I really hope so.

I think that PC Plum did once use Miss Hoolie's first name, but I may have hallucinated that in a fog of sleep deprivaton.

Conversely, do Spencer and Archie have last names?

PC and Miss

Throbbing Plum, and Julie Hoolie.

I thought it was Julie Hoolie.

According to Wiki, Hoolie is actually her first name. Her full name is Miss Hoolie Hoops hmm

No mention of PC Plums firs name, or Spencer and Archies last names though.

Spencer Timewithme, and Archie Eyebrow.

Yes, I suspect someone is Having A Larf with that wikipedia entry...

I didn't realise who Julie Hoolie was married to. You will probably only know him if you are Scottish or have ever seen Chewing the Fat.

So I'll have to obtain and watch every episode ever (aren't there about 300 of them) in the hopes of hearing PC Plum reveal all...

My dh refers to 'Archie the drug dealer' which can cause problems when we're with other children discussing cbeebies...

PortAndLemon Tue 22-Sep-09 19:14:59

No one else online seems to remember it, so my money would be on the hallucination theory. But don't let me stop you watching them all, if you feel moved to do so...

coolma - in a similar vein my partner always sings 'here is miss hoolie who tickles my goolies' in the refrain bit which is also something I discourage DD from picking up and repeating outside the home. Very inappropriate

I can't look at PC Plum since coming on MN, after someone said they sang "I'm PC Plum and I take it up the bum" blush. I sing that song in my head whenever he is on.

While I was googling to see if I could find the answer I found this and PMSL

CSI balamory is superb! My dh works for CSI (yes they are now called that) and it is their staple viewing on bad days!

MrsGokWantstogocampingagain Tue 22-Sep-09 23:24:24

Coolma what a cool job your DH has grin

Would love to do that as a job but I just haven't got the stomach for it. Though I will lap up all the gory details on CSI, go figure.

there was once a thread on MN which mentioned a scottish toy shop website which had some fantastic theories (though maybe not answering the OP), but I don't know where to look for itsad

Hoolie Hoops? Rrright...

I always thought it was Julie, but just because it sounded right.

Spencer's last name is ThePainter, and Archie's is TheInventor. Seriously, I expect Archie;s full name is something like The Laird Archibald McTavish of McTavish.

Julie is the name of the actress who played Miss Hoolie - Julie Wilson Nimmo.

Is there seriously CSI Balamory episodes? lol

coolma Wed 23-Sep-09 06:59:01

There was one sketch on one of the bbc two comedies - I can't remember which one . It's you tube - able though - hilarious!!

Brilliant - just re-watched it. Wish it was a bit longer though.

MrsGokWantstogocampingagain Wed 23-Sep-09 19:36:37

Yep! totally agree, I was just getting into it and it finished.
