Sadly, this is indeed a myth. Here's some of what's said on Snopes:

Claim: The characters on the British TV cartoon series Captain Pugwash had names that were sexual double entendres.

Status: False.

Origins: The Captain Pugwash cartoon, which originally ran on the BBC between 1958 and 1967, is widely believed to have featured characters with risqué maritime names such as Master Bates, Seaman Staines, and Roger the Cabin Boy. In fact, the crew of the famous Black Pig ship included sailors with no such names: present on board were Master Mate, Tom the Cabin Boy, and Pirates Barnabas and Willy. (No character with the designation of 'Seaman' appeared in the show.) Series creator John Ryan successfully won retractions and settlements from the Sunday Correspondent and the Guardian after both newspapers claimed that the show's characters did indeed have smutty names, and that the BBC had taken it off the air as a result. The Guardian's statement ran as follows:

In the Young Guardian of September 13 [1991] we stated that the Captain Pugwash cartoon series featured characters called Seaman Staines and Master Bates, and for that reason the series had never been repeated by the BBC. We accept that it is untrue that there ever were any such characters. Furthermore, the series continues to be shown on television and on video. We apologize to Mr. Ryan, the creator, writer and artist of the Captain Pugwash films and books. We have agreed to pay him damages and his legal costs...

...The British comedy duo of Victor Lewis-Smith and Paul Sparks has claimed credit for starting and spreading the Captain Pugwash rumors, and the double entendre names have also been attributed to a sketch by "seventies folkie comic" Richard Digance as well as a "1970s rag mag."

Then, the lamp (which talked) said "so it's you who is shuffling around inside me". After the bird was granted a wish, the genie went back into the lamp and, well, the lamp had an orgasm! It starts bouncing and going "Oooh, oooooh, ooooooooh", and the narrator said that the lamp liked the genie shuffling around inside her.

Then, Hubba Hubba () said to one of the Hoobs, something along the lines of "If I had one of those I'd waggle it all day" and then ended on "wheather you're waggling of woofing..."

Am I being too perverted?
I have been thinking this about The Hoobs forever, I always laugh when I hear the 'Hubba Hubba! Hubba Hubba!' refrain, but thought it was just me being perverted.

Seriously though, how great are some of those songs?

"We're off to see the tiddlypeeps, on the road we go!"

Just watched that, was in hysterics! I see you didn't mention the counting of banana skins, though:

"One skin, two skin, three skin, four skin..."

My keyboard is soaked in tea!

Without quoting the whole of your thread, it seems obvious to me that you are reading a lot of Adult meaning into an innocent childrens program, which actually has no innuendo to a child.

Best stick to grown ups television

I remember Raibow always being a laugh.

Along the same lines...has anyone else thought the same about the song from 'Kubb'?

'Let it grow inside of you, let it flow.
Let it flow inside of you'

That's excellent, I can almost hear them saying it.

I'm watching the Hoobs again (sorry to bring up an old thread), but there's more sexual innuendos in this episode, hehe - or I just have a sick mind

One of the Hoobs said he liked a good old "suck on that" (or something to that affect) when he pulled something out of a box.

The episode is about toys which make Groove (the green one) go "aaaah" *cue the orgasm noises from the Hoobs*

Pink Hoob:"Maybe if you had a furry toy here, right now, it'll make you go the whole way" (talking about the going "aaah")

Purple Hoob: "I'll be your furry toy".

The female Hoob loves her toy, "Minky". "I love my Minky" she said. Whilst the two male ones went to see the "Tiddlypeeps", she said "and I'll stay here and play with my Minky".

They're having orgasms, really One of them is squeaking and the other two are going "aaaaah" and getting lower to the floor.

The furry, noisy toy didn't do it for him, though

A miserable princess just bought a doll from a "toy shop" and is not miserable anymore.

The purple Hoob is dressed in woman's clothes (it's male), with rabbit ears on and is making squeaking noises.

Ooh dear - his toy is called "Sookie", haha - this is the thing he said he liked to have a good old suck on

After a song, the green one said "That was the nearest to a full blown aaah I've had so far", and then went on to say "...I'll have a big aaaah and it'll shoot right out".

Hubba Hubba has been "aaahhhing" all day, apparently.

They found a toy which moves that might make Groove go "aaaah" - "it didn't make you go aaah, did it?" ... "no" ... "not even once?".

The toy which finally made him go "aaah" was a monkey which was playing cymbals, and Roma is "off to have some fun with a monkey".

This is all real, from the episode I'm watching now

"When Ivor tried to be a furry toy, it never made me go aaah... I liked the idea of a furry toy... it just needed something else... I liked the idea of a furry, noisy toy in clothes".

Oh, the toy changed to a monky playing drums and shaking his head (wanking )

Phler... clearly sexual innuendos

You're right as ever Ste.

The Hoobs never fails to raise a grin in this family. I'd been meaning to bring up a song I heard recently on the Hoobs. The decidedly dodgy lyrics were as follows:

Rub-a-dub-a-dub Rub-a-dub Rub-a-dub-a-dub
Naaah nah-nah nah nah nah nah naaaah
Rub-a-dub-a-dub Rub-a-dub Rub-a-dub-a-dub
Naaah nah nah nah naaaah

Imagine if a little man
Lived inside this lamp so weeny
I would tug as hard as I can
And out would pop a little magic genieeee... oh

Rub-a-dub-a-dub Rub-a-dub Rub-a-dub-a-dub
Naaah nah-nah nah nah nah nah naaaah
Rub-a-dub-a-dub Rub-a-dub Rub-a-dub-a-dub
Naaah nah nah nah naaaah

I'm Jeremy the Genie
At your service at your command
Jeremy Genie
I am your slave
Oh what's your demand?
I've come here, I've set up camp
Right inside your magic lamp

What's your wish, what dream's for you?
Tell me and, I'll make your wish come truuuue.. oh

Rub-a-dub-a-dub etc. etc.

I must admit, it made for some absolutely quality viewing, especially considering the way the Green Hoob was rubbing the lamp. I can't even type the lyrics without crying with laughter.

Was that from the episode I described in the first post? I remember there was a song.

The lamp started having some kind if lamp-orgasm
