This might get you thinking if, you are really bored today..Also, it will help me win a 20 euro if I'm right (bet on with a friend)

I know the voice of Bosco was female...BUT..

Was Bosco a male or female??

Oh he was a boy. He made that plainly obvious in between Gregory Gráinneog and Séamus and Sheila to Philip one arfternoon in 1983! Seriously tho. Bosco was a boy.

I may be wrong but I always thought Bosco was a boy!! There are three reasons why I think so:

1. Inside his box was like a boys room and if I remember there was a football in his box!

2. He wore pants!

3. He never played with dolls and liked scissors!! Ha Ha

Knowing my luck I'm probably wrong!!

Bosco was a boy. Still is. He is currently doing the after-dinner circuit.

The ultimate proof of this is that the word is a Cavan saying, greeting one another with "All right Bosco?". This is exclusively said by men to other men.

Also, John Millington Synge wrote two acts of a play called 'The Rambler the Red-Haired Bosco', which was closed after just three performances after the audiences' reactions to the lying, lip-licking schemer that was the character of the Red-Haired Bosco. The character had a "wheedling high pitched voice as would part the moss from a stone" and was a male peasant farmer.

Richard Deeds, the RTE props designer credited with creating Bosco has referred to this character as inspiration for the ideas he submitted for RTE's new children's show.

That’s not true Loosey Your friend may have some of the replacement Boscos. The original and the star (the replacements were never needed for the TV shows and were only used on roadshows to schools) is still going strong. I have seen Bosco’s after-dinner speeches. Hilarious stuff. He does a great joke about Barry White and the Darth Vader.

And he comes out with some incredible stories about his private life and isn’t afraid to dish the filth.

The wee scamp.

There was a girl on Ray D'Arcy's Odd One Out quiz and her Mam was the voice of Bosco. Ray asked her the million dollar question but I fucken forget what she said.
