The Quack Chat Show



Keith Harris


Orville the Duck, Cuddles the Monkey


BBC, 1989-93


In one of the games on The Quack Chat Show, two kids against each other would be seated on either side of a bubbling gunge pool, dressed in green duck suits, complete with headgear. They would try to fish out as many hooked rubber ducks as they could with a tailored rod from the side of the pool. Whoever had the least when the time was up would face punishment and have the seat that they're sat on tilted forward, where they'd then have no choice but to slip off and fall into the pool. Each week, the winner would always also get pushed in by Keith! The gunge pool bubbled throughout and made it appear really gross to both the contestants and the viewers, and was referred to as the "Yucky Mucky Duck Pond".

In amongst other games in the show, one involved Cuddles the Monkey, where contestants had to roll coconuts in a bagatelle-style game. The losers were made to eat what was supposed to be digusting types of nosh served to them in a silver tray and dome.
