This page contains all the appearances of Tim and Debbie of which I am aware.
The Comedy Cafe In Melbourne
The characters of Tim and Debbie were apparently created in the early eighties as part of a theatre restaurant show at the Comedy Cafe in Melbourne. For more information, see the Look And Listen Article.
Australia - You're Standing In It
Tim and Debbie then appeared as characters on the Australian TV comedy show Australia - You're Standing In It which was broadcast by the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) throughout Australia in 1983 and 1984. For more information, see the Look And Listen Article.
Tim and Debbie's Reel to Real
After appearing in Australia - You're Standing In It , Tim and Debbie hosted a TV show called (I think) Tim and Debbie's Reel to Real in which they showed bad old movies and constantly interrupted them to point out the continuity errors, and to comment on the content in their inimitable way. Apparently the movies all had the common theme of having the same musical director ("Bakalinikov"?). This programme was screened on the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) (probably) in 1985.
