of Cooker Island

Swinging from tree to tree, these extraordinary acrobats can cover great distances at phenomenal speeds, whilst simultanously cracking coconuts and coping with a full load of colourfast nylons on program 9.


Burrowing beneath the earth, Toasters are shy nocturnal creatures who emerge during the hours of darkness to forage for worms and grubs, and hold all-night parties.


Herds of TV sets graze peacefully on the plains, occasionally ascending the slopes of mount Grundig, where they can recieve a clearer signal.
