Thread Name: Russ Abbott's Spinners parody
Subject: Russ Abbott's Spinners parody
The Spinners have made an appearance in a recent thread which reminded me of this parody from Russ Abbott.

I think it just goes to show how popular they were when another popular entertainer could parody them on mainstream TV - I think Russ was on a Saturday night wasn't he? I don't think he would get away with some of the stuff he did nowadays. I remember his 'The Spanners' doing a song where they all wore white Arran jumbers apart from the Cliff character who had a coloured one on. They were doing a parody of 'Little Boxes' and they all sand something about a white one apart from 'Cliff' who sang 'I get to wear the coloured one'. Wonder what would happen if it was shown now? :-)
