I’ll have an R, an I and a P, please Bob

Very sad news today that beloved 80’s TV hero, Bob Holness, has died at the age of 83.

He was also an accomplished actor and broadcaster, but other children of the 80’s may remember best the soft toy mascots, the flashing hexagons and the infamous ‘Can I have a P please, Bob?’ which inexplicably was still hilarious, even on the seventeenth time of watching.

And what other TV show can claim a dance routine created solely for its theme tune?

R.I.P. Bob. Enjoy the memories:

p.s. who knew he was South African?
