    It looks like this came out before biodegradable plastics.

    Shouldn’t these things all be killing seals by now?

    I am pretty sure i had one of these bags.

    It was a campaign to encourage buying stuff with the WA logo on it or something.

    The didactic jingle went something like:

    “You check for the birthmark…. [character sees birthmark]… Go for it! [character buys item]”.
    But I don’t remember the kangaroo mascot.

    I am sure Frank will remember it better.

    It would’ve looked better if they’d used a dolphin.


  8. I was tempted to go irrational hatred on the poxy bali memorial in Kings park. Anyone with me?

    I am hesitant to include the results of my own research but it might appear that they were asking the wrong people.

    What ever happened to the whole sandgropper thing? I was talking to a west Aussie recently who didn’t know about it. Was it just a channel seven promo?

    Wow. I just remembered meeting Keith and percy penguin on the Superhero Saturday morning show. I won a jigsaw puzzle.


    • I won a Hair Bear Bunch game from Sandy on Children’s Channel Seven. Hair Bear Bunch? What fuck?

        Well TLA Thanks for allowing me to have my say on your fine blog but I think I just one of those epiphany things that skink keeps banging on about.
        For me this site has become too one dimensional which I think is a great pity as I truly believe it has an important role to play in the overall fabric of Perth but the incessant negativity has simply outweighed the fun factor.

        Good luck to you all.



        • Really? i think you are just seeing (and creating) problems where none exist. Why have a vote? Did you think it would all be against you? Wasn’t a single person that thought you should stop. The people have spoken. There is no actual problem.

      Depending on your vintage you may have shaken hands with Todd McKenney, who was animating old Percy in the late 80’s early 90’s – he even deputised for Reg Whiteman as the Obese Feline when he needed to be in more than one place at the same time.

      Here is a current shot of Reg with the latest version of the Obese Feline who I believe is being animated by a female.

      Reg Whiteman and Fat Cat

    I remember that!
    How weird is the concept of a colouring in competition when you think about it? Very Rodney Glick post modern.


  14. Meccano101 says:

    Does Keith still appear on seven? Todd Johnson?
