Potty Time, Michael Bentine’s

EX-GOON AND Square-worlder played avuncular host to the Potties: short, squat, neckless bickering puppets reconstructing mighty moments from world history (see MIGHTY MOMENTS FROM WORLD HISTORY) with little regard for facts or coherence. Featured durable double-act Big Potty and Little Potty. Thousands of episodes made, inevitably lapsing into glorious parody along the way: On The Pirate Buses, Pottdark etc.

    Little puffs of talcum powder spewing up out of the papier-mache to depict explosions. Bentine’s more-than-a-little-bit-manic laughter at almost anything.

    School yard banter, suggesting that the title of this show, meant that Potty Time was about teaching small children how to use the toilet.

    The obligatory Christmas episode.

    Jingle Bells parody;

    “Oh what fun it is to ride in a super sonic sleigh.”
