I know it's a very late topic to come back to but I did discover this page while looking up Bill and Ben:

http://www.toonhound.com/sept2005.htm

Which, if you scroll down a little, says that Bill and Ben's language was not based on farting in the bath, nor was it called 'Flobbadob', as Stephen Fry claimed. The language is called 'Oddle-poddle' and all episodes had to be translated into it.

Yes, the point is to be interesting instead of correct, and this has probably been brought up earlier, but they did manage to blame QI for spreading the rumour... I thought that made it worth the risk of a post.

Very good, Pyreo.

One for Flash's Retractions Special, by the look of it.

Yes, thanks - a really high-quality denial. I got the info from Hilda Brabben's obituary in the Telegraph; just goes to show how careful you have to be.

Lopadop, Pyreo. Waddle oo tikoo dop?

Now you're just being silly, Flash.
