Ali Bongo’s Cartoon Carnival

A TWO-PRONGED, double-content pre-GRANDSTAND bonanza from P. Daniels’ late “magic consultant”. Ingredient A: “Bong” stands in front of a machine he called The Great Pandemonium – a giant structure with six or eight windows, each with a lever beneath used to open it, revealing the titular cartoon behind (for instance, PIXIE AND DIXIE). For ingredient B “Bong” becomes children’s party entertainer and does crappy tricks like placing three apples in front of him, asking “How can I move the first apple to the middle without touching it?”, and proceeding to move the opposite apple over. Boo!

    I do remember this classic programme from 1972, that is 40 years ago now. I loved it, to bad it did not last long.
