All that money and they live like pigs

Trough not pictured
A little over ten years after the publication of Animal Farm and two young piglets, in true Orwellian style, took over the nation's TV screens and refused to budge. However, unlike Napoleons and Snowball, Pinky & Perky made a right song and dance about it. Week in, week out.

They even predated the Now That's What I Call Music brand by releasing their own versions of the hits of the day. In 1974, just when you thought Paper Lace had scraped the bottom of the MOR barrel with Billy Don't Be A Hero, our two little piggies took it to market and then put it through their very own sausage machine.

  1. Aww! I adored Pinky and Perky when I was a nipper and I had a record of them but it's so long ago I can't remember what it was now, I think it may have been a flexi-disc, or something on coloured vinyl to go in my small collection of favourites next to Chim Chim Cheree and How Much Was That Doggy In The Window.
    I'm afraid that by 1974 they just weren't the same...

    1. I meant, How Much IS That Doggy.... I'm even thinking in the past tense now...
