Children’s TV legend Patsy Biscoe, whose body of work includes children’s television with both Here’s Humphrey and Fat Cat and Friends, sat down to reminisce with News Corp’s Matt Gilbertson.
In recent years the South Australian has been a a local councillor and naturopath in the Barossa.
No discussion on her years in entertainment would be complete without a question on The Big Gig and Glynn Nicholas’ hilarious Pate Biscuit parody, but she acknowledged the impersonation as a tribute.
“It’s one of the best things that can happen. I thought it was just gorgeous and he’s so talented,” she said.
You ended up performing with him didn’t you?
“Yes! I went on his show, I loved it.”
So, I have to be honest, I was much more a fan of Fat Cat than I ever was of Humphrey. When did you make the change to that show?
“I had my son and at that point I left Humphrey and had six months at home. Fat Cat and Friends became the program and I started off just doing a segment, popping in during the show. It was great fun and the timing was right.”
Asked if she would ever perform a concert, Biscoe said, “I really don’t think so, that part of my life is in the past. I’m much happier enjoying music for me now.”
