2007 Geminis Puppets Skit

There has been lots of discussion about this clip from the Gemini awards in Regina a few weeks ago. The Jerome and Rusty puppets were retrieved from the CBC by the late Friendly Giant's family after this was aired. They were upset because the CBC did not ask for permission for their appearance in the video. They probably felt the integrity of the characters were disrespectfully portrayed. I can understand their displeasure, but I still laughed my ass off! Judge for yourself, I'm sure this was the highlight of the usual boring awards show.

That was great!

Too bad the family were po'd. It couldn't have been that hard to get permission from the family but I guess no one thought to try.

I still remember watching Jerome and Rusty when I was a little kid back in the late 50s.
