Whatever happened to......?

Recommended Posts

Hi GD., if memory serves me correct, it was a bit like a song story similar to Sparkys magic piano, probably in the late fifties. Tubby was a tuba that could talk, in a fashion . Bet some clever clogs will come on and put me right. B.

Forgive my ignorance but who or what the heck was Tubby the Tuba?

Thanks Brew, a minor irritation for what appears to be a Musical------there is no sound!

Got sound on mine GD., never realised it a cartoon though. Told you some clever clogs would put me right. Cheers Brew. :bravo:

Your right about Sparky, was well ahead of its time. Beekay.

Talking of whatever happened to.....Does anyone remember the hot dog sellers who used to frequent  around the city centre, with their little push carts? Bags of bread rolls and tins of frankfurters, fried onions if you were lucky. I assume they were heated by calor gas. Nowhere to wash ones hands etc. My mate used to have a cart and he said it was quite lucrative, till you were moved on by Plod.

Thanks Beekay, I don`t know what the technical term is, but the cartoon morphs into a selection of other cartoons which do have sound.

Still one at Ocean, but don't know if he has a cart, I'd imagine they got driven off the streets by Environmental Health

I meant the bloke selling the hot dogs, (or donkey's plonkers as my mate called them ! When he set out to work a stint, he always used to take clean, wet facecloth in a poly bag). Never asked him what he would do if he wanted the toilet. Another thing, they never worried about being robbed. B.

Had a look at the link Stuart, thank you, but don't think I'd buy one from him. Wonder how much they are nowadays. Have no idea where the Ocean is so can't comment, and I don't mean the seaside !!

The reason I mentioned hygiene was that many years ago there was a Hot Dog Seller pitched outside of Boltons Burnden Park, with a permanent "dewdrop" hanging from his nose. Never  saw him again after a gang of Chelsea fans pushed his cart over. Perhaps they thought they were performing a public service?, Not!..

Likewise Bubblewrap. Although I did see him on Arnold Rd a few weeks ago.

Think Bubblewrap just got bored, plus he’s back in Nottingham and has lots of Real Ale pubs to frequent, infinitely better than Loughborough!
