Meet Agro, The Horny Australian Kids Show Puppet

By / 10.18.12

As if to make up for that horrible Christina Hendricks interview, Redditor (they NEVER say anything remotely misogynistic) FullPetalAlchemist came across a fantastic early 1990s blooper reel featuring Australian puppet Agro. Remember racist ALF? Well, Agro’s a bit like that, except instead of saying the N-word (boo), he talks about a “cannon [exploding] into her love purse” to his co-host (yay). On a kids show. Australia is great.

According to Wikipedia:

Agro’s humour was rather adult, with much sexual innuendo, cursing, and disinhibition. He would often appear with an innocent-acting female offsider, who would be subjected to mocking and sexual behaviour. His pre-taped performances in those shows intended for a juvenile or family audience were obviously vetted before broadcast, but in the adult-oriented shows (and in the Christmas tapes of Agro’s Cartoon Connection) his antics were well received.

Many of the clips below are from the Christmas tape (though kids were often present, too), but I’ll never not be amused by a puppet who looks like a moldy chicken nugget quoting “Good Ship Venus” (“Twas on the good ship Venus, by Christ you should have seen us/The figurehead was a whore in bed/And the mast a rampant penis”) and stories like this from his adorable co-host, Ann-Maree Biggar:

Agro would always poke my leg under the table if I gave him any cheek and no one else would know. One time when I was reading a viewer’s letter, I said something nasty about him, I gave him a really good shot, and he got his finger up and prodded me in the leg just near my bum like he always did.

But I must have stepped back at the wrong time and his finger went “you know where,” right up there! And the look on my face, my eyes just went BOING. I lost it quite uncontrollably. I stopped to hear Agro laughing and he says, “Well excuuuuse me!” and I say, “Be careful!” and we lose it in front of the kids, who’ve of course got no idea.” (Via)
