Alas Smith and Jones Thimble, that was ALIAS Smith and Jones.. this was ALAS Smith and Jones. It was indeed a comedy sketch series with Mel Smith and Griff Rhys Jones - the title was a play on words :)
Pop-up Pirate I agree Jacamanda. I hated playing this too. Wouldn't have been so bad, but the pirate was made of really heavy plastic so it would always really hurt!
Speak & Spell Oh the hilarity at asking my brother to come over and pressing the following buttons: 'U' 'R' 'A' 'P' 'P'. Never failed to make us laugh. I remember accusing my friend at school of being a liar when she said she had one that was for Maths... Sorry, Leanne!
