Does anyone know who the 1960s comedy act was who performed a comedy act dressed as a baby with the catch phrase 'banging the pudding basin with a spoon', it may have been 'bang with the boon on the budding badin'. It was possibly performed on the royal variety or the good old days. The family are driving me nuts trying to work out who it was, please help me!

I remember my dad in tears watching this guy on the good old days. He talked about it for days. I'll have to check out you tube, and remind my mum.

I know when the 'Bang with a Poon' sketch was. It was on The Good Old Days on 26th December 1968. But how can I watch it?

Yes, I remember it. It was performed by Terry Scott.

Are you sure? I thought it was Freddie Sales who went bang with a poon.
