Far Out Man is a lovable and cheeky fellow who is covered from head to toe in green spots. He lives far out in the universe (hence the monicker) on planet MTV. With his trusty ray-gun always at the ready he gets up to side-splitting antics - from an extreme form of cucumber abuse to a novel but efficient method of extracting eggs from a hens bottom.

This is the story of a pair of siamese twins. The action takes place almost entirely within the confines of the fairground in which they live and work. The only times that we see beyond the confines of this little world are in the twins' dreams of breaking free; of the fairground and one another.
One twin dreams of scoring a hat- trick for England in the 1966 World Cup Final, while the other twin dreams of being Elvis Presley with hordes of screaming fans drooling over every little wiggle of his hips. These two incompatable fantasies serve to highlight the twins' alienation from the fairground and their detestation of each other.
Ultimately, and at it's most basic level, The Kings of Siam is about the conflicting elements that combine to make up a single personality, and how should one or more of these elements remain unfulfilled or undernourished, this can escalate downwards into mental illness.
The Bunjies are the biggest, greatest, loudest Rock and Roll group in the World. They are also not yet out of junior school. Royalty, Presidents, Prime Ministers, Totalitarian Dictators, they all want to be photographed alongside The Bunjies. The Bunjies, however, aren't interested in any of
that. They just want to rock. Well, actually, they just want to rock and then smash their instruments in front of a hundred thousand screaming fans... after they've finished their homework, of course.
