1[on 'The Friendly Giant'] we used two puppeteers until I took over for Rusty as well. At that point Bob [Homme] and I realized we could ad lib the program and dispensed with scripts, which gave the show a different ambience.
2[on 'The Friendly Giant'] The program started out with another puppeteer. This man was not tall. He didn't have a long enough arm to make Jerome appear as a giraffe. Jerome would come up to the window, slump down, and look more like a horse or a cow.
3[on 'The Bananas'] I was trying to create a program that was wry, ironic and sardonic - something to get the audience to question things around them. It represented a sort of civilized iconoclasm that I believe kids should be exposed to. It was quite successful with audiences, but it died for lack of funds - it was expensive for the time. We probably should have changed the title after the U.S. program aired, but the CBC really liked the name, so we stuck with it.
