I only remember the two kids having armfuls of toys and games and cabbages at the end.

Methinks you might be mistaken on both counts... :D

Double or drop was the game with the cabbages... :oops:

As a kid I hated that programme - there was that little fat bloke Peter something-or-other, and him with the Ostrich, where it looked like he was sat on his back, Don MacClean, (that's the bloke) he presents a religious programme on Radio 2 on a Sunday morning now.
It was an awful programme, so tacky and childish, I really felt that they were insulting my intelligence (and I was only 11)Image

Rolf certainly wasn't a presenter, but I seem to remeber him being on the program in its early days.

Was that the program he used to do his big paintings with rollers and ask, "Can you tell what it is yet?"?

No, that was 'Rolf On Saturday', and also the later series, 'OK!/Hey Presto, It's Rolf!'... :lol:

Eamonn Andrews was the first presenter, aided by Leslie Crowther and Peter Glaze. When Eamonn left, Michael Aspel took over as "straight man". Don MacLean was in it for a while, but not on an ostrich - that was Bernie Clifton, who was also in the show. Towards the end of the series, it was "Little and Large" who did it.

I loved the short play they did at the end of each programme, where they'd cleverly incorporate the hot pop songs of the time. Maybe that's one of the reasons it ended? I dread to think what kind of plays would come out of the songs in the charts now!
