    Re: He is real....

    I'm old and have only seen Sooty with Harry Corbett!
    Now quite concerned about Basil Brush!

    My whole life is disintegrating in front of my very eyes - ooh hold on that may be the effect of much alcohol last night, I think I may be one of those 30-40 year old people that were in the news this week for not knowing when to stop drinking. :P

    Oh .. you mean a different Matthew Corbett?

    The one with his hand shoved up a bear's backside all day?

    Nah ... the beard is too full and he has more hair than me.

    On a side note, it was sad to hear that Matthew had sold the rights to Sooty (circa 1997) but he had not been able to act as Sooty's 'handler' for some time as he had serious issues with his circulation in his hands (medical name eludes me atm).

    The Sooty Show is up for sale again as the rating have declined and there is yet to be a partner as successful as Matthew. Matthew has now also reverted back to using his real name of Peter.

    It is been sometime since I had a body to match Goldberg's ... and my wife complained that is was starting to smell, so i had to take it back to the morgue!

    Weedy!!!! WEEDY!!!

    Just you wait till I get my hands on you and *then* I'll show you who is weedy!

    (also, please note that I have not regularily shaved my head for a number of years. I was forced to shave off my goatie when joining the army for many reasons, including the ability to safely use a respirator ... but at the same time I was banned from shaving my head or having a grade less than a grade 2 ... it was deemed to be too aggressive to have a shaved head!)

    What a very strange thing to do....changing his name from Peter to Matthew, it's not as if his birth name was Lindsay or Eggbert....peter to Matthew is ordinary to ordinary.

    the last time i watched the sooty show was when i bought a dvd for my son and we watched it together...it was complete rubbish because they added these extra puppet characters. You could tell they were trying to compensate for something. The biggest problem i had was the new corbett was a complete t**t, he obviously didn't have his hand anywhere near sooty so someone else was puppeteering , but worst of all was the voice of Sue....which sounded strangely eastern european!!!! So folks panda bear sue from the sooty show is now Polish... Not the sexy english accent Sue voice i remeber as a young boy.

    I'm surprised HIT don't already own Sooty, they own the rights to practically all other childrens shows like Bob the builder and The Wiggles.

    Then again shows like The Wiggles are phenominally sucessful, unlike sooty.

    BTW how do people know what the 'Dook lokes like ? They're not going by that 'If i was a simpsons characther..." thread.

    Re: He is real....

    There are various pictures around of me ... but I know Gecko very well ... he used to be 'the annoying student' at my last place of work ... then he got a job doing tech support and became 'the annoying sidekick' to kingswood.

    Now he is simply 'annoying' ;-)

    Thanks. I can see the goldberg similarities, albeit Tony's got more hair, and obviously drinks a lot less milk.

    Have a good christmas break eveyone.
