With Rod Hull and Emu around mayhem is never far away.

Comedian and puppeteer Rod Hull and his troublesome friend Emu are guests on 'The Late Late Show'.

After questions from Gay Byrne about Emu's age, his diet of worm sandwiches and cabbage water, and the tricks he can perform, it is not long before things get boisterous.

On the pretense of demonstrating his skipping skills, Emu attacks Gay Byrne and ends up rolling around the floor on top of him ignoring the presenter's plea to get off and pouring water over him.  

I told you not to have him on the show.

This episode of The Late Late Show was broadcast on 21 February 1981. The presenter is Gay Byrne.
