Podge and Rodge were created and voiced by Ciaran Morrison and Mick O'Hara. They also wrote and voiced Zig & Zag and Teddy T and Bronx Bunny from the Bronx Bunny show.
Podge originally appeared on The Den, as a decidedly evil little character. At first, he was introduced as nothing more than a puppet Zag (of Zig and Zag) had found in a box amongst the rubbish behind a magic shop, and used him to practice ventriloquism.
The duo's increasingly regular use of profane language and sexual innuendo made them unsuitable for a children's television show (one particular line occurring at approx. 4 p.m the utterance of "Dustin smells like sh*t", which Dustin covered quickly with "I'm not wearing a hat!"), so, they were moved to a close to midnight slot, in the program, A Scare at Bedtime.
