The Unfriendly Giant

Published March 28, 2010 - 7 Comments

Does anyone else remember The Unfriendly Giant?  It was a radio spoof of CBC’s The Friendly Giant television program.  I’m pretty sure that it played on CFBC, but it was no doubt broadcast on other radio stations around the country.  I’m thinking that it was on in the early-mid 90s, but I don’t specifically remember which year.

I used to listen to it faithfully, with the Unfriendly Giant finding new and amusing ways to abuse poor Rusty and Rooster, and Jerome the Giraffe.  Yeah, I know that sounds cruel, but trust me.. it was hilarious.

Just did a quick Google search and see that there are several entries about Unfriendly.  That’s good.  I remember looking a few years back, and there was nothing at all.  I guess that it might be possible to find some long lost episodes, after all.  I used to own a cassette with an hour’s worth of episodes, and like an over-trusting idiot I lent it to someone and never got it back from them.  Was I smart enough to make a copy?  Oh hell no.  Yeah… dummy…

I miss you, Unfriendly…
