Geoffrey had a really crap existence if you think about it. Zippy was always kicking off, Bungle was constantly telling tales and George didn't know whether he was coming or going. Here are a few examples of how Geoffrey's life was an unending misery.
They forgot to put zippys zip up
I vaguely remember watching Rainbow live on stage when I was very small 😊
Zippy's in my top 5 comedy characters. I don't care that it's for kids, it's bloody funny.
Geoffrey always had such lovely highlights, in his hair that is.
George was so clearly gay
Zippy might be a jerk and Bungle might be an absolute plonker but George was often unfairly treated and shouted at for nothing.
In another episode they whine away about how Geoffrey is supposed to be looking after them and he says something like 'I know I am sorry' and in another they are worried that his aunt won't be able to look after them as if he's the only person in the whole world who could. It's horrible that he's stuck in that situation where he has that responsibility and isn't free to get a wife and normal kids of his own. ;-) I wonder how the whole situation came about? In real life I am in a similar position of caring for an adult family member and I sometimes feel trapped. If I was Geoffrey I would retort, 'why should I?'
"Oh look...its fallen over again!" 🤣🤣
I was QvqyO5ds7lw&t=2m22s 2:22 in and the realisation hit me that I'm a middle-aged man... it's 2am... the family's in bed... I'm working at my desk... WATCHING RAINBOW! /facepalm
I suppose I could be watching something worse... just.
“One skin….two skin….three skin……”
It's Jeffery I worry about. One wonders what happened to this man in his life that he should find himself in such drastic circumstances? not to mention the individuals he chooses to freely associate with.
George didn't have a clue and went coo coo. Great stuff and character study! ZIPPY!
Zippy is class
This happened a few years ago...
When I was in Year 9 (I live in UK, but Year 9 is my country’s version of England’s Year 8) we were having a joint class with the Year 10s in our Religion class. One of the kids in the class was talking too much, so the teacher compared him to Zippy from Rainbow, and told the child that if he didn’t be quiet, he’d zip his mouth shut. Lol! 😂😂😂
I wonder if Geoffrey always drank heavily after he finished doing one episode of Rainbow. I bet he drank heavily after the show ended. Anyway RIP
What kind of drug fuelled horror story is this? Geoffrey lives in a house with a strange pink hippo, and whatever Zippy is supposed to be and a teddy bear that came to life. OMFG this is the creepiest thing that has been made ever.. what were our older generation thinking?????
Geoffrey was like a father to them
I wonder what age Goerge Hayes was when he passed away. Looking after that little shit Zippy must have taken a few years off him. Loved him (zippy) all the same!.
