Tong of the Black Scorpion[edit]

I thought the Tong of the Black Scorpion originated in an episode of It Ain't Half Hot Mum. In the episode "Pale Hands I Love" from season 3 the Sgt Major had a romance with a Chinese refugee girl in the nearby town, but the Tong put a stop to it. This is confirmed by the BBC's own Doctor Who website which describes It Ain't Half Hot Mum as "the first mention of the Tong of the Black Scorpion!" P Ingerson (talk) 08:40, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

{{Merge|The Two Ronnies|date=August 2011}} Question if this merits a separate article. PatGallacher (talk) 23:23, 3 June 2011 (UTC)

Merging?[edit]

I dunno about merging into the main Two Ronnies article, but it strikes me that a single article covering their serials - this, the Charley Farley And Piggy Malone quartet, The Worm That Turned, etc - might be a good idea.

Raspberries Specially Blown By Spike Milligan[edit]

Although imdb does credit David Jason for the raspberries in the original "Six Dates With Barker" version of "The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town", the "Two Ronnies" version (with different script and cast) clearly lists Spike Milligan in the closing credits, using the phrase "Raspberries Specially Blown By Spike Milligan". This can be seen at 8m18s in the episode at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1hji4fpuFI .

The article as it currently stands is confusing and appears to state that David Jason did both, but there is no clear evidence to refute the on-screen credit for Spike Milligan. Chopper Films (talk) 12:17, 7 December 2013 (UTC)
