Cannon and Ball were guests on the show in 1996.
Tommy was introduced with the voiceover “Tommy, who plays the part of the cannon, and Bobby, who plays the ball, were originally called Pea and Shooter. But as their popularity grew the size of the weaponry increased. The one displayed here is the cannon.”
While Bobby was introduced as “Bobby sits alone all day on his mountain throne looking down benignly on the residents of Huddersfield, tugging gently on his bright red trouser harness, in the forlorn hope that he might be called down to fight for Huddersfield against Bradfords own mountain guardian, Vic Feathers.”
Bobby was on a team with Ulrika Jonsson and Richard E. Grant, Tommy was on a team with Mark Lamarr and Kate Beckinsale. Bobby’s team won.
