I'd never heard of this animation series before, as it wasn't shown in the UK, but it's known in many other countries...

All these years I've modelled my DIY on these guys without realising it! wink.gif

Classic! I grew up with these two guys. These films can be enjoyed on so many levels, they're great fun for kids, and still perhaps even funnier for grown-ups!

Yes.

I can see their influence in some animation and comics that came later - except it can't be their influence, because I can't find anyone in the UK who has ever heard of them. Shame.

Oh well, the joys of YouTube.

I'm just hoping my son doesn't decide to re-create this cartoon with my records!

Cheers,
David.

I grew up with this in the early 80s, and the first time I saw Wallace And Gromit I thought "the guys that created this surely must have liked 'A je to!' a lot" laugh.gif I'm sure they did know it, because the inspiration is bloody obvious there.

God yes. They were called "Neighbour & Neighbour here", referring to eachother as such. It was great fun.

Yes, this is a classic from my country. smile.gif
The series has been used as a fairy tale for children before they go to bed (broadcast around 6:50 pm, before the news).

That is just awesome! Their 'hardcore remixing' just blows my mind.

(Too bad the humor may be lost on younger and future generations who may never experience disc-shaped analog storage media and their intricacies.)
