    Does anybody remember a childrens character the Pickarooney? It came up in a drunken wobble down memory lane the other night and it’s really been bugging me since! The only shows I can think of are Forty Coats, Wanderly Wagon, Worzel Gummidge, Pajo’s Junkbox and Bosco – and not sure if it was any of the above. Any ideas????

    did Judge the dog not do the safe Cross Code at one time on TV. I have a strong memory of this and can’t find it on U tube! I remember the Brendan Grace one fine. I thought Judge had one too!

    what about slightly bonkers ? was that a character in wonderly wagon.. a slightly gay character i do recall ??

  • 6. niall  |  November 18, 2008 at 4:12 pm

    The Pickarooney and Slightly Bonkers were both characters on Forty Coats.

    The Pickarooney was the bizarre hobo-type character who kept saying “I’m the Pickarooney”

    Slightly Bonkers was the girl in the Flying Sweetshop with Forty Coats….her mother and father were called Totally and Absolutely)The slightly gay character was the fella in the Sweetshop….SoFar SoGood.

    If you need, you can choose one of the Las Vegas
    hotels since the setting for your Las Vegas NV wedding ceremony,
    reception and honeymoon. Just just because a link is
    on Piratebay does not necessarily mean that the users are
    installing, so because of this, the flawed data.
    The vulnerability has apparently been fixed considering
    that the interview with Russo happened, and usernames are again safe and secure.

    Be aware of stiff competition, because employers nowadays are
    looking closely into human skills as well as the technical skills.
    Dentists always ask for the name and phone number of their patient’s
    physicians. It is often performed for procedures like tooth extractions and dental implants.

    In the time it takes for the mental curiosity of the Gemini mind to inquire,
    search, devour, and absorb a mental concept that was hitherto
    unknown and unlearned, the Libra is still pondering what shade of pastel reading glasses should be placed on their aquiline noses, and the Aquarian is interrupting the Scales’
    perpetual process of hemming and hawing by attempting to
    ask if anybody has seen their super large reading glasses, which incidentally, are already placed
    atop their super large craniums. There is not any way to prioritize goals or
    synchronize attacks. Every Cancer, as well as Pisces and Scorpio should always try
    to keep in mind, the less communication there is, the greater the room for miscomprehension and misunderstanding due to incorrect

    For example, I have a friend who skipped her high
    school reunion because she had become fat.
    In terms of logistics, a guy, or gal, barely able to maintain his or her vehicle leads to
    unreliable service and greater hazards on the road. Earlier this yr,

    The style in the direction of customisation and the
    growing relevance of industrial create, as observed most significantly in consumer electronics,
    will certainly need novel methods for proving brand-new item homes and forms, and bespoke production abilities.
    If you look very closely to just what these commercial robots as well
    as AI systems do you will certainly view that it’s nearly an adjustment of which does what what they concern address.
