Tinga and Tucker Club

FAIRLY ROUTINE irritating puppet-plus-annoyed-presenter kid show with (mostly) JEAN MORTON doing “redoubtable” as the supervisor of anarchic koalas Tinga and Tucker, plus mischevious Willy Wombat. The club proper encouraged vaguely religious altruistic behaviour for the kids (helping mummy, etc) a la THE SUNDAY GANG and KNOCK KNOCK. Pinky and Perky-style speeded-up voices emanated from the sub-Sooty glove things, a story was read, mini-mayhem ensued. Also featured ATV continuity announcer ‘UNCLE’ PAT ASTLEY, father of TISWAS party pooper GORDON ASTLEY.

    You could only get into the Tinga and Tucker club if you’d been in hospital. Not worth the effort really.
