Here's a television commercial for Wobbie's World.

Note the enthusiastic sounding voice over.

Only Wobbie's World could have come up with "The Wobcat Tracktor" :lol:

Here's another commercial in case you missed it -

Gotta love the background music and that fireman

There's some incredible stories about the history of that place, apparently the family that owns it owns most of the buildings on that end of Bourke st, and has crime connections. No wonder they didn't want a camera crew in there in the 90's!
According to a report in the Sunday Herald Sun, the Job Warehouse is on a list of unused buildings in Melbourne that are in need of a makeover. The list was compiled by the Lord Mayor, Ms Sally Capp.

Of the Job Warehouse, the article described;

"once colourful fabric shop's windows now boarded up."

What was meant by 'colourful' could mean anything.

Apparently, there are plans to restore the Job Warehouse 'to its former glory.'

Uncle Alberto's house, Villa Del Sol, which featured in Understanding Wogs and the Burke's Backyard bit that was hosted by the D-Generation can be found at 50 Chapman Avenue, Glenroy.

The house Santo stands in front of in the Things Wogs Would Never Do ("Credit cards or tasteful homes") is at 373 Brunswick Road, Brunswick.

Sorry if this has been mentioned before, I went looking through the forums and I couldn't find a confirmation. I know that the Chapman Avenue house is for sure the exact house as it still has the painted logs on the concrete balustrade and the words Villa Del Sol. The 373 Brunswick Road was confirmed by matching the house to the shapes of the two surrounding houses; it also hasn't changed at all in shape or colour since the show aired.
Here's the house from 'Things Wogs Would Never Do'. It was for sale 2 years ago.

I thought back to some of the sketches from the first episodes of The Late Show.

One was about TV extras making the most of their appearances, and trying to get discovered.

This starred Guy Pearce and Lucinda Cowden. They played people sitting at a table in a shopping centre food court.

Then there was a mini documentary in which Jane Kennedy played a model.

Both of these were shot at the Northland Shopping Centre in Preston, Melbourne.
