TV Animal Kwackers (ITV 1975-78, Bev Doyle, Dave Bassett) Published 3 years ago on June 29, 2016 Children’s entertainment Animal Kwackers featured a pop quartet, Rory (a lion), Bongo (a dog), Twang (a monkey) and Boots (a Tiger) who just happened to be animals (or actors in animal costume at any rate). There was something decidely off kilter and other worldness about the animals themselves, aimed at a generally pre school audience but the gang were quite scary with their over sized heads. In 1979 the gang appeared on the Christmas Day morning ITV show A Merry Morning (also made by Yorkshire and broadcast from the National Children’s Home in Harrogate, fellow appearees included Mike Harding and Jimmy Tarbuck). The group released a tie-in LP called 20 TV favourites. production details UK / ITV Network – Yorkshire – Trident / 39×20 minute episode / Broadcast 1975-78 Creators: Bernard Lee, Peter Eden, Terry Eden / Story Adaptations: Gerry Andrewes / Movement Advisor: Sheila O’Neill / Graphics: Jeff Parr / Executive Producer: Peter Max-Wilson Narrator: Gerry Cowan cast BEV DOYLE as Rory ATALANTA HARMSWORTH as Bongo STEP MORLEY as Twang DAVE BASSETT as Boots Children's TVITVTVYorkshire Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes3 hours ago Miracle Workers: 12 Days (TBS Tues 26 Feb 2019) 12 Days: A troublesome human complicates Craig and Eliza’s plan, while Sanjay attempts to burnish his credentials.
