Here’s a quick little something to to tickle your fancy; a snippet from that lovable couple, Min and Henry…

Robin Queree is Spike Milligan in The Goon Show LIVE!Henry Crun:
…Here, Minnie, hold my elephant gun.

Minnie Bannister:
Oh dear, I don’t know what you brought it for, you can’t shoot elephants in England you know!

Henry Crun:
Mnk? Why not?

Minnie Bannister:
They’re out of season.

Henry Crun:
Oh. Does this mean we shall have to have pelican for dinner again?

As you no doubt guessed, that delightful interchange is from Spike Milligan’s ‘The Dreaded Batter Pudding Hurler (of Bexhill-on-Sea)’ which was first broadcast on on October 12, 1954.

This particular gem is one of the treats on offer at our next show on Saturday 26th September, at Woy Woy on the NSW Central Coast. Yes, it’s our first show in Milligan Country!
