A 'Late Late Toy Show' favourite when Zig and Zag drench Gay Byrne with a water pistol. The puppet aliens have brought their friend Dustin the Turkey along for the occasion.

'The Late Late Toy Show' began in the early 1970s as a half-hour slot at the end of 'The Late Late Show', designed to give parents an idea of what toys were in the shops for Christmas while their children were supposed to be asleep in bed. It soon became a one-night show in its own right, complete with children toy-testers and performers. It was presented by Gay Byrne until Pat Kenny took over in 1999. The current presenter is Ryan Tubridy, who began presenting it in 2009.


A 'Late Late Toy Show' feature from 6 December 1991.
