How on earth did you do that?

Hi Pen

I used this button located above the smileys.
Cheers, Jack

2018 film starring “Slartibartfast”

9(#4 #5) 6(#2 #4) #5
Homophones abound; last image, change the first letter

Hi Pen,

The Aussies got out of jail free in the first innings.



 


The Rebus today is a British television sitcom which ran on BBC1 in the 1980s, consisting of four series and one feature-length special.

#4     #17( 10  7)

 

Picture 1.  Ditch the first letter
Picture 2.  Reminder:  It is two words


And I’ll leave you with this:

Cheers, Jack

Hi Jack

I very much enjoyed your post & sussed your rebus :)

Zoe & I have just got back from Buckingham.  We treated ourselves to a massage for our Christmas presents.  Very good it was too :)

I shall be very glad when the Ashes are all over.  There's only so much pain & humiliation you can put up with  :(

I'm following your theme for my rebus.  It's a comedy programme from the 1970's

#6 #4


Please change the first letter of the second picture.

The second part is the main character.
6 (#4 + #2)

Second picture is a homophone.

      

Nearly time for some grub :-H  Leave you with this... :'(
If life gives you lemons, add a large gin & some tonic...

John, Like you I have been trying to find new ways of presenting concepts in Rebuses as variety is the spice of life.  Otherwise, as it becomes increasingly difficult to present common elements in ways that are not instantly recognisable, we may as well just spell the element out.

On the rebus in question, the UK knowledgeable players have an advantage.  I had never heard of the series until it was mentioned in an episode of Pointless.

By the way, congratulations on becoming one of top 10 topic starters.
Cheers, Jack

Hi Pen,

This is an example of an approach I just mentioned to John.  It makes sense to me but I have a twisted mind.  Let's see if it works.  I have included some of the traditional elements to make the rebus easier to solve.  The size of the images is not unintended.

The subject is the title of a 1900s American comic science fiction film.

#5, #1   6   3  #4

   

The definite article and punctuation are not pictured.

Feedback needed.

Cheers, Jack

Only for just under ten years.   When I first joined the forum, l was too shy to post, (Stop laughing) but I was curious how it all worked, so I poked my nose into all the nooks and crannies.  I've forgotten more than I remember but every time I sign in I generally take a look at who else is online and what they are doing.  I also check up on the stats from time to time.  I guess I am just a natural sticky beak.   I am not the only one am I, Pen?
