The light entertainment world is in shock after police revealed that Nookie Bear is under investigation for lewd behaviour in his 1978 family TV show, ‘Nookie Time’. The charges relate to an edition where Nookie introduced pint-sized Scottish warbler Lulu as ‘the wee Scottish lassie with a fantastic chassis’ to an audience of astonished schoolchildren.
Looking back I did think Nookie was a bit creepy,’ Lulu said. ‘After I performed my song he asked if I liked it up the Trossachs, then he did his trademark leery cock-eyed face thing into the camera.’
Police may also investigate the follow up series, where kids brought in their homemade wildlife art creations, called ‘Show Nookie Your Beaver’. It was later cancelled in favour of ‘Come With The Krankies’ featuring a middle-aged man dressing his extraordinarily short wife as a naughty little schoolboy, which producers felt better captured the kids’ TV ethos of the 1970s.
