Scottish charts?[edit]

The article says their second single "only charted in Scotland". Is there a Scottish chart?! Sah10406 (talk) 00:04, 16 January 2016 (UTC)

Relationship between characters[edit]

The page says that the Krankies were played as father and son - I always thought they were meant to be brothers. Can anyone confirm this either way? -- (Anon)

They were supposed to be father and son. -- Derek Ross | Talk 05:39, 21 June 2006 (UTC)
I've removed the salary statement since I can't find any grounds or source for it whatsoever. I've also removed a libelous statement from this discussion page.
In some of their earliest national TV appearances in theatre variety shows Ian doesn't know Jimmy at all. Jimmy is just a lost child who walks up on stage. (83.16.188.58 (talk) 12:27, 6 February 2012 (UTC))

I believe they also used to do a sort of ventriloquist act, with Jimmy (Janette) as the "dummy".

They also had a record called "Where's Me Mam?", with Janette as Jimmy and Ian as the mam.

When they appeared on Crackerjack and other later shows, Jimmy called Ian just Ian, not dad or anything like that.

1950's precursor[edit]

The idea surely came from Jimmy Clitheroe - who however was a male dwarf.

Everton fans[edit]

Is it right that they are Everton fans? Is there any references? αυρδεκ ζαφιρ 10:11, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Why is it important to the article? - Dudesleeper talk 11:32, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

energy companies?[edit]

is there a citation to back up the statement about them visiting energy companies with jimmy nail, seems a bit random. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 193.30.108.35 (talk) 15:00, 19 October 2012 (UTC)
