It Came From YouTube Classic: Andre the Giant on Australian Kids Show

5 Submitted by on Thu, 17 January 2013, 09:00

Here’s a rare video of an Australian kid’s show featuring Andre The Giant chatting with a freaking bird that has a blue mohawk.

A bird puppet being a regular on a talk show. What the hell were those guys thinking?

(Note from RD: Did that girl say she wasn’t wearing any underwear? What kind of kids show is that?)

    Ah, Hey Hey It’s Saturday. Great show in it’s day. Ozzie Ostrich (the bird puppet) was later phased out, because the actor doing his voice bit the hand that fed him (pun intended).

    RD, it may have been a kid’s show (at first, anyway), but there were a TON of references/entendres that went over the kid’s heads.

    Is there supposed to be a link to the video in the graphic? If so its not working on my end.

    To be fair, this was long after HHIS stopped being a Saturday morning kids’ show and became a Saturday night variety show, what everyone watched before going out on the town. The bird – Ozzie Ostrich – and the head on a stick – Dickie Knee – were two of the most recognised characters on Australian TV for a long while. And they often had wrestlers on when the shows came through Australia. Great memory, though.

    Loved how Andre not only copped a feel on her boob, but her butt as well.

    Good job, Andre. That’s how you do it proper.
