Topo Gigio

Post by Kool » Sun Dec 03, 2006 10:02 pm

Anyone remember this adorable little puppet? I have changed my avatar in tribute to him. He's an Italian mouse and a very cute mover. He used to be on the London Palladium TV show. He's not really gone, but never seen in the UK anymore.

Also used to appear on the Ed Sullivan show in the U.S. - here's a clip of him in black & white, circa 1963:

I remember him because my sister (with whom I didn't get on at all) loved him. So I used to take the p155 something rotten whenever he appeared - to the extent I don't remember whether I really liked him or not. :twisted:
Sworn, b'loody!

Nobody got on with their sister... mine wouldn't even stay in the house alone with me, for fear of what I would do to her.

No! I'm not a horrible bully... that's just what God gave us sister's for.

It was the law.
