Quote from: Twilkes on July 20, 2022, 12:14:05 PMI'm sure they did a tango song, and while dancing with a lady some of the lines sung to the traditional tango melody wereRonnie: "Get, those, pants, down."Lady: "Not bloody likely."which seems very direct, even for the 70s. Can't find the clip anywhere though, possibly the Tango Tease sketch from S6E4.
Quote from: non capisco on July 17, 2022, 09:51:29 PMInterminable fare but I like how the approximation of the Star Wars theme at the start is basically just the melody to 'Born Free'.
Quote from: poodlefaker on July 20, 2022, 01:08:03 PMhardly an original thought, but there was just so much of the Two Ronnies - 15+ years of it - that once you get beyond the great stuff that always appears on the compilations, an awful lot of the week-in week-out content is of-its-time hackwork.

Quote from: Phoenix LazarusTrue of Python too, even with a much lesser output.

Quote from: idunnosomename on July 18, 2022, 07:04:41 PMimagine as a kid you'd get so excited "OH WOW ITS DARTH VADER STAR WARS YEAAHH!!! THATS BESPIN WHERE HE DUELS IN THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK!!" and then you get six fucking minutes of unfunny patter songs about robot mother in laws.he says "low bot" at one point which I like to think is a reference to the Bald robot bloke Lando has.
Quote from: Fambo Number Mive on July 19, 2022, 11:07:09 AMSuch a loud cheer when Little and Large come out as New Kids on the Block. Not sure whom the other three people dancing with them are.
Quote from: George White on July 20, 2022, 08:38:13 PMCorbett in brownface looks uncannily like the actor Sethan Rosh Roshan Seth (Gandhi, Temple of Doom, My Beautiful Laundrette, etc).
Quote from: Des Wigwam on July 20, 2022, 06:45:03 PMWhen I think of the monologues it's like someone tuning a radio. I can remember them being the bit to endure then a brief period of getting bits of them and then they were the really good bit I looked forward to. It's like they suddenly came into focus.Which is like the tuning of the eyes so that still works.

Quote from: Video Game Fan 2000 on July 20, 2022, 09:05:39 PMDoesn't "big bad mama" come from the same skit as Corbett's horrible Boy George impression? I half remember it, it might have even come up in a program about racism and blackface?
Quote from: idunnosomename on July 18, 2022, 10:43:56 PMoh interesting. guess they were fed up of penning crap like this?...
Quote"Personally, I found bits of it quite funny - the silly Beefeater song - but thought the smug jibes at the news-desk, where they couldn't even get their positions the right way round, were fairly hypocritical considering their own track record of smutty innuendo. The trouble was, Not the Nine O'Clock News was 'hip' and on the ascendant, and just as people like Mike Yarwood were now suffering next to Spitting Image, the Ronnies began to look dangerously old-fashioned."
Quote from: George White on July 20, 2022, 08:38:13 PMThe Grease sketchthe Rons did is Saturday Night Grease, part of that weird thing where they'd do a Saturday Night Fever parody but conflate it with Grease, so would sing rock and roll rather than disco.
Quote from: George White on July 20, 2022, 08:38:13 PMI have a vague memory of as a child of 4/5 watching.the French and Saunders Phantom Menace parody and thinking it were real Star Wars. All I remember was that I thought Jimmy Krankie was a real boy.
Quote from: Cold Meat Platter on July 20, 2022, 09:09:40 PMThe worst bit by far was always "Ladies and gentlemen, would you please welcome... Elaine Paige."why
Quote from: McDead on July 20, 2022, 09:50:49 PMPhantom Raspberry Blower scared the shit out of me at the time and continues to trouble me to this day. He's just so fucking unhinged looking.
Quote from: George White on July 20, 2022, 09:17:29 PMNo, it was in the one with Steamy Winder and Status Who?, hosted by Dave Lav Trellis.Big Momma was also a G. Wiley script.The Coy George one was in a sketch with Barker as 'Kid Coalhole and the Monkey Nuts' (also a Wiley/Barker script), doing a fair impression (boot polish aside) of August Darnell singing 'There's Something Wrong - My Parrot's Died' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGVx7zogIPY
