Interlude

I was looking for BBC Potter's Wheel Interlude, but then I found this . . . Things were much scarier in the past . . .

Crabtree said...

A copy of R2D2 ?

Are appropriate you really blond ? :)

I could have watched that train set with the motorway running round the edge all day...

scarlet-blue said...

Beasty: Sorry! Well it'll give you something to look forward to!

Crabtree:Je suis beaucoup un blond. Je ne suis pas au gingembre. Avez-vous daleks en France ?
I am very much a blonde. I'm not ginger. Do you have daleks in France?

Cakes: I know, brilliant isn't it. I can't find the proper 'Potter's Wheel' one though, only spoofs of it, which is a shame.

Mr Coppens said...

Anything would be better than having the Robots take over and I for one, will welcome our new Alien Insect Overlords with open arms!

*heads for the hills

Mr Coppens said...

J'aime manger le gingembre.
Elle était ma fille préférée d'épice.

Hope you enjoy my elementary command of Franglais. I speak tree langwidge, h'inglash da best.

Kate Lord Brown said...

Oh, I should not have watched that! Thinking 'not the puppy!' then 'not the baby!!' No wonder we've all grown up 'special' - that and the Singing Ringing Tree - enough to scar you for life.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Coppens Erm...I don't like insects...
I apologise for my French! It's courtesy of www.freetranslation.com! I think M.Crabtree uses this method as well. I'm very pleased that you like to eat the ginger spice though!

Kate I spent hours trying to find a clip of the Singing Ringing Tree when we last talked about it. I will try again because it must have been the creepiest programme ever made for children. No, I'm not surprised that we grew up 'special' either!

Bring Back Michael Bentines Potty time, outstanding sets...

scarlet-blue said...

Wendy: That was my very favourite kids programme. That was so brilliant. I will have to see if I can find a clip of that as well.

KAZ said...

Really scary has to be black and white.
That's why the new Pinky and Perky will never work.

The Dotterel said...

And they said there was never anything on the telly!

Kevin Musgrove said...

Now that is terrifying!

I'll be sending you the laundry bill.

MJ said...

Is this a peek inside the British psyche?

Ginro said...

There are loads of Michael Bentine's Potty Time clips on Youtube. And is this the Potter's Wheel you were looking for?

Potter's Wheel and Others

And I always loved the Daleks. Remember getting one that looked remarkably similar to the one attacking the train. Anyone else remember Supercar and Fireball XL5?

Gadjo Dilo said...

Woah, bizarre! I still haven't got speakers so don't know if there's a commentary - but it's probably scarier without one!

Mr Coppens said...

The Humans are DEAD!

Mr Coppens said...

All I said was that I like to eat Ginger and that she was my favorite Spice Girl?
Oh Dear, I see what you mean.

scarlet-blue said...

Kaz: I think Eastenders might even have a bit of depth if they filmed it in black 'n white.

Dotterel: Yes, but you have to hunt for it. This is an old forgotten masterpiece.

Kev: Well I'd rather that than you sending me your pants.

MJ: Now you know will you be more gentle with us? We have suffered.

Ginro: Oh blimey, thank-you! I don't need a lot of encouragement. Will have a look in a bit.

Gadj: Do you remember black 'n white music? It's like that. Really scary!

Mr Coppens: I will check out the link and probably come back screaming.
Come now, Mr Coppens...you knew exactly what you meant by eating ginger....I didn't mean 'come now'- that wasn't a command or anything....oh bloody hell....

Gyppo Byard said...

I thought the crawling doll was scarier than the dalek, personally. Animated dolls are scary in a clown sort of way. Daleks are fun!

PI said...

And I thought 'The Hills have Eyes ' was scary.

Practically Joe said...

That was a very close storyline to War of the Worlds.

scarlet-blue said...

Gyppo: I'm an animated doll and I'm not scary...am I?

Pat: Okay - something else I forgot to watch Pat!

Joe: I spotted the uncanny likeness as well!

xoxoxo

scarlet-blue said...

Savannah: Yep, sometimes these word verification thingys seem to have second sight! I've got pantsua.

World Champ Stephen Neal said...

When robots celebrate Halloween, they watch World Champ movies.

Gorilla Bananas said...

That crawling baby would be perfect for a remake of The Exorcist, Miss Scarlet. Forgive me for asking a personal question...but is it yours?

:: Wendy :: said...

I thought 'the hills are alive with the sound of music' was pretty scary, I've always thought the von trapp familly and the midwich cuckoos had rather too much in common...

VE said...

Wohoo...29th!!!!!

This is so life like I was dizzy...

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Neal: You're far too cuddly to even scare a robot!

Mr B:!!!!???

Wendy: I sang the punk version of 'The sound of Music', and it was a lot less scary than the real thing. People laughed...

Ve: I'm sorry Ve, you sit down and I'll bring you a beer.

Mrs Pouncer said...

What in the wide, wide world is scary about this? You should see what's going on in MY head. Lightweights.

scarlet-blue said...

I'm sure your head is a wonderful place to be Mrs P.

Kevin Musgrove said...

It wasn't my pants I'd ruined Scarlet!

Take no heed of Mrs. P. Her mind is currently addled by a surfeit of draught mescalin foisted on her by naives scallettes in a seedy waterfront dive.

Glamourpuss said...

Ah, the potter's wheel, so calming..

Puss

scarlet-blue said...

Well Kev I'm pleased you didn't send me somebody elses pants!

Yes Puss, he makes it look easy, when in reality it isn't. It used to drive me nuts, I was never any good at it.

ChrisV82 said...

Bloody hell, that's the stuff of nightmares.
