Torchy the Battery Boy

My brain will never fully recover from viewing this.

Information here.

PS: do not confuse Torchy the Battery Boy with Bill Ward's Torchy.

Pinocchio remake. But strange, yes.

Somehow I knew that Torchy - The Battery Boy was British before I even attempted to watch it. They've got/had an obsession with marionettes.

As for the other "Torchy" she may be hot but she'll never replace J.R. in my heart! Who, BTW, didn't make the "Hottest 100" list!

Before someone gets wize and starts cracking about "J.R." I thought I'd better post a picture so there's no confusion!

I wonder how many episodes it took before parents were secretly singing "Torture! Torture!"

Yes - was exposed to this as a toddler,- they're still trying to find out what is wrong with my mind to this day.

Watched as an adult, the weirdest bit for me is the eye shadow on the poodle. Otherwise, it strikes me as peculiar that the kid is wearing almost bavarian costume. And again, he's the product of a virgin birth . . .

Btw, for weirdness, has anyone seen the moon sequence from the 1940's Baron Munchhausen film? Around about 1hr 33 mins in of the full version.

Street of Crocodiles is good too, from the 80's:
