I remember clearly a time when Thingees eye popped out halfway while Annie was presenting. She just stopped mid sentence and held her face to stop from laughing, meanwhile Thingee had no clue and was wondering why Annie wasn't responding to his cues. THAT was live...

I remember this scene but i can also remember another where
Thingees eye only came partly out and poor Jason could hardly
contain the giggles .... would love to see that scene again

I remember that, funny.

..and further- Son of a Gunn was all pre-recorded, yeah. Children were not traumatised by this scene for some time.
Thingee is a wotchamacallum, not from this planet. Jason shortened it to Thingee- back in the old days words with more than 9 letters were not allowed on TV, it was too expensive. And the rumour about Alan Henderson? I've met him in real life and he's nowhere near as funny as Thingee, and has a much shorter nose.

I was on camera 3, I think. Thingee covered up so well (or I was so dumb) I didn't notice, til I saw another camera-person almost in stitches trying not to laugh :) Glad I was there, as I forgot to turn for Gallipolli.

@Robyn - thanks, I've amended the synopsis. I did think that the 'adult-sounding' studio laughter sounded odd in the Son of a Gunn context!

Hey, this didn't actually happen live on air. The segment was pre-recorded and was never originally aired on The Son of a Gunn Show. Its first broadcast was on a blooper show - that's why there's an adult audience laughing along to the clip.
