  1. Zippy

    Zippy was a fictional character on the British children's television programme Rainbow. Zippy is a brownish-orange puppet with a rugby-ball-shaped oval head, blue eyes and a zip for a mouth, hence his name. His voice was first provided by Peter Hawkins, later by Roy Skelton. Ronnie Le Drew operated the character. It is unclear what kind of creature, if any, the character represents: while Bungle is a bear and George a hippo, Zippy bears no obvious resemblance to any real animal.
