Pigeon Street

The Programme that got us talking about Flashback Friday wayyyy back in 2013 - Pigeon Street.
So here's a bonus Flashback just for you @IHaveCards and @jessikart.


If you lived in Pigeon Street,
Here are the people you could meet,
Here are the people who would say
Hello, Goodbye, Hello, Goodbye
Every day



Pigeon Street was an animated children's television series originally shown on the BBC in 1981, only 13, 15 minute episodes were produced.

The shows featured the everyday adventures of a group of characters living on Pigeon Street, an area of flats and terraced housing in a British city, also home to several pigeons which appeared in each show but only occasionally featured in the plot.




Characters



Bob was the owner of "Bob's Bikes", a bike shop. He owned some pigeons and took part in competitions







Reg was Bob's brother, he worked in the park.








Doreen was Reg's wife and was a ballroom dancer.






Reg, is the keeper
of park, playground and green.
Reg, is the keeper
He likes to keep things clean.

Chorus (cheerful):
But at night, to his delight
la la la la la la la la la
To go dancing (dum dum dum)
To go dancing (dum dum dum)
to go dancing, with his wife, Doreen


The old ladies Daisy and Rose lived next door to each other. Daisy fed the pigeons on her window sill, but Rose scared them away.

     





William was the streets window cleaner. He was married to....








....Betty.








Jim was William and Betty's son.









Long distance Clara was a lorry driver. She was married to,,,,,,





..... Hugo, the cook.






Long-distance Clara drives a juggernaught
way down the motorway
to the busy port

Long-distance Clara - nothing's too far away
Picking up and dropping off, load after load
Long Distance Clara, shifts the gears
Long Distance Clara, she safely steers
Long Distance Clara, slams on the brakes
Long Distance Clara, accelerates
Long Distance Clara driving round the bend
Hot dinner waiting at her journeys end
Long Distance Clara, driving down the road
Always on time and never late

(spoken)
Long Distance Clara, well, she could drive,
across the Sahara....

Pole to pole, east to west
nothing's too far away
for Long-distance Clara




Mr Jupiter was an astronomer, always carrying his telescope. He slept on the bench in the park and looked at the stars. He had a dog called Flash




Mr Baskerville was a detective, always carrying his magnifying glass. He had a dog called Watson.






One looking up, one looking down
Eyes to the sky, nose to the ground
Clouds for him, clouds and birds.
Grass for him, and ladybirds
Jupiter far, Baskerville near
One looking up, one looking down,
Eyes to the sky, nose to the ground




Dr Glossop is married to.......



........ Mrs Glossop.







They had three children: Molly, Polly and Gerald. Molly and Polly were twins (can you tell which is which?). Gerald was their older brother who played the saxophone

  


Polly and Molly are two of a kind
They look just the same when they're seen from behind
But when they turn around it's easy to see
Who's Molly - with an M and Polly with a P.




Mr Macadoo owned the petshop.





If you've got a problem with your pet
take it along to Macadoo
He's like a vet so get along
And Macadoo will know what to do.
MacAdoo, has the knackado
MacAdoo, he's no Quack a doo
MacAdoo, doesn't lack-a-do
MacAdoo, is the man for you
MacAdoo will help your pet
Well, Mr. MacAdoo, well he's the best vet
Like a vet, MacAdoo wil help your pet
So don't mess about and without much more ado
get along (clap clap clap) to MacAdoo




Mrs Patel

The sights, the sounds, the air, where...
Pigeons beat, their wings, wings beat.
Pigeons beat, their wings, wings beat.
To meet in Pigeon Street.
