Pot? Weed?

Talking rubbish? 'Oddle Poddle'.

Always happy, grinning inanely,

flower power, up to mischief.

More to Bill and Ben

than meets the eye.

Why was Slowcoach so slow?

Cos he was a tortoise?

A likely story.

And just who was Dan the Potato Man?

"I think the little house knew something about it,

don't you?"

Yeah, right,

No wonder that Freeman's a soft southerner!

I can't see anyone under 60 having much to say about this, Dave!
Personally, I preferred the wildlife programme - Rag, Tag and Bobtail.

Script writing was so easy then! Thanks for the lovely memories - do you think this programme was the start of the FlowerPower generation and their preoccupation with 'weed'?
no wonder the woodentops dog had its ears cut short and his tail cut long. Surreal man!

Bill and Ben! Where do you start, Dave? Their strange relationship with Little Weed - they'd scarper home to her whenever trouble threatened and disappear into their flower pots - the man who worked in the garden, who we never saw, and the little man with a squeaky voice who used to give me nightmares. I'd forgotten about old Slowcoach. Never mind Andy Pandy and Rag, Tag and Bobtail; Bill and Ben was the only kids' programme worth watching at that time. Oh, and Sooty , of course.

I wonder what the writer of Bill & Ben was on all those years ago. Luckily I must have been slipped some of the same 'cos I watched it - not much else on if my fading memory serves me right. See, I can talk rubbish too! ta muchly,
