• Short Summary

    Comedian Peter Maloney and a dolly bird find that their paper clothes are not water repellent.

  • Description

    Teddington, London.

    Comedian Peter Maloney is seen walking along with a girl beside the river at Teddington; he wears a suit made out of newspaper and she wears a newspaper dress. They are filming part of the ABC TV series 'Maloney on Fashion'. A man with a hose appears and directs the water jet at Peter; as his paper suit starts to disintegrate, leaving him in shirt and pants, he runs to a barrel and puts it on to cover his modesty. Brief shot of cameraman filming the action and man holding sound / microphone boom.

    The girl stands laughing; Peter takes the hose and turns it on the girl; her paper dress falls apart and she runs off, wearing just a bikini. Commentator says "And it's a good job that bikini isn't cut out of a comic".
