- Bits and Bobs
"Bits and Bobs" is a children's television programme which is produced and broadcast by the
BBC. It is aired on CBeebies(both the separate channel and CBeebies on BBC Oneand BBC Two).
It features two balls of fluff: "Bits" and "Bobs" who live and travel in a "car" called "Trug" (which, according to the theme tune, created Bits and Bobs after escaping from a toy factory). Using Trug's eyepiece they explore the world and try to work out what different items are. They have the catchphrase "If I don't know and you don't know, and you don't know and I don't know; do "you" know?".They continuously nose each other by rubbing their noses. At the bottom of Trug is a secret compartment where Bits and Bobs keep their most prized objects. They access this compartment with a crane fuelled by sugar cubes.In one episode, Bobs famously headbuts Bits in a headbutting contest.
Bits and Bobs also is english slang for a collection of small items to numerous or varied to name individually. It originated from a carpenters tool kits containing parts for a drill, with bits used for making holes and bobs are routing or screwdriving drill attachments.
e.g. can you get that yellow box of bits n bobs from the van ?
