The Tomfoolery Show

I'm glad I'm not the only one...

I must have been about five and this was definitely my favourite cartoon. I suppose 90% of it must have passed over my head, but what the heck, it had exploding eggs, a goldfish on stilts, the yonghi bonghi bo, who unleashed FIRE, FLOODS, EARTHQUAKES and TIDAL WAVES when he got angry, and a theme tune that I still can't get out of my head thirty years later...
"Because we're puttin' on the nonsense
The silly stuff and nonsense
The riddles, jokes and silly things
It's all Tom-Fool-Er-Y"

I was 9 years old when this was on. I can't find anyone else who remembers anything about this show. I remember it as an anarchic mish mash of a slam dash wham bam thank you ma'am. And they also played an animated version of the Jabberwocky (sp?) poem. The show moved at the same pace as the synapses in my head. Like a bunch of children tied up their keepers and had their way with the joint. Somebody there had Timothy Leary’s phone number tattooed on the souls of their PF Flyers.
