A 'Late Late Toy Show' favourite when Zig and Zag soak Gay Byrne with a water pistol.

The puppet aliens Zig and Zag along with friend Dustin the Turkey demonstrate some toys including a builders tool kit and truck. Zag has a shy doll that cries and another doll Baby Alive that, 

Is my favourite it does poo poos. 

The three puppets surprise Gay Byrne by soaking him with a water pistol. The presenter takes his revenge by turning the water pistol on the audience. 

'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.
