One of the most memorable series of sketches on the show was 'Tum and Phul', the presenters of a fictitious New Zealand morning radio show.

These sketches provided Tony Martin an opportunity to poke fun at his New Zealand heritage and accent, exaggerating these to a comedic nth degree by featuring a preponderance of words with a flattened 'i' sound.

These sketches have become some of the best known from the show, partly due to several of them being included on the Martin/Molloy compilation albums.

In this sketch, the New Zealand accent certainly gets a working over with the duo attempting to outsmart the New Zealand film commissioner.
