    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Though historical accuracy is not expected in 'The Phantom Raspberry Blower', it should be pointed out that Queen Victoria never called her son Edward. Edward VII only took that name when he became king. Before then he was known as Bertie.

      • Barker: We at the GPO are often asked, how can you, the average viewer, combat this endless round of upping prices and upping wages? What can you do when we continually up ours? The answer is simple: up yours.

      • Queen Victoria (RC): You will not leave this palace, not with this terrible phantom gooseberry sucker about.
        Prince of Wales (RB): Raspberry blower, Mama!

      • Barker: Senator Grunsden, candidate for the United States presidency, complained today that, just because he likes to go down to his Carolina poultry farm, help with the harvest and preserve his beet roots, that doesn't make him a cotton-picking, chicken-plucking pickle-dipper.

      • Barker: We've heard from a very disappointed guest at the Charles Dickens Society's annual nudist weekend. He had great expectations, but it was a very bleak house and everybody laughed at his little dorrit.
