Zig & Zag
Australia Crest

Disaster struck the 1999 Moomba Festival when Zig the clown quit amid revelations that he had indecently assaulted a child 20 years ago. Zig and his long time partner Zag were to be crowned Kings of Moomba.

Zig, Jack Perry aged 82, and Zag, Doug McKenzie, were veterans of 44 Moombas and considered Icons.

Moomba will continue its 9 day festival in 1999 without a monarch.

To crown it all, Zag has dumped Zig, the end of an era has arrived. Zig even played his banjo at the launch of television in Australia back in '56.
