In this 1996 clip from the Topp Twins' first television series, the comedy and musical duo immerse themselves in the Horowhenua A&P show. In character as country girls The Gingham Sisters (also known as Belle and Belle), the twins talk teats with a farmer, before being entrusted with exhibiting his champion cow in competition. The Gingham Sisters were among the first characters the twins developed, back in 1984 — Jools and Lynda Topp grew up on a Waikato farm. The segment also features the bumbling Camp Leader and bossy Camp Mother, two of the most beloved of the Topp Twins' comedic alter egos.
Well all the best with your cow. May all your teets be straight!– Camp Mother (Lynda Topp) learns what the show judges look for in their cows
