When we look back at our childhood, there was nothing better than waking up early every morning to watch TVNZ's What Now.

Remember the gunge?

Well, we have a feeling the popular kid's program is currently a little red-faced after the presenters, Evander and Erin, unveiled a new 'character' to the show.

The puppet, which they are currently calling their "purple little pal" while it awaits a name, appears to have a vivid sexual reference.

Yep, we can't help but notice that something about the puppet's design isn't quite right.

We Need A Name!

Of course - GUNGE was what our purple little pal wanted all along! They're going to fit in just fine around these parts. But surely a name is in order right? We're ready and waiting to hear your suggestions Facebook whānau so fire away - we'll be keeping a close eye on our favourites 👀

At a quick glance, the purple puppet has been designed phallic-like in shape ... and the rest we will leave to your imagination.

Whoops!

What Now airs Sunday mornings at 8am on TVNZ 2.
