I find it almost impossible to believe that this was actually broadcast to children. But then again, it was the 1970s and anything was possible.

  1. While Rainbow was an actual children’s television show in the 70s, this particular episode was a parody filmed for their own amusement. I don’t think it was ever aired, or at least was aired late at night.

  2. Dan is correct. I grew up with Rainbow as a kid in the 70s and 80s in the UK, and it was nothing but wholesome kids edutainment.

  3. twanger was a made insturement made out of a box (a wandwich box or ICE creem box) which they cut to holes at the top of the box and put a plastic band though the holes of the boxand tyed the ends of the plastic bands at the end with a knot. kids can build and some still do to day. the tranging is the kind of sound this instrument makes. as you can see zippy has a red sanwichbox
