Songs by Zog Chorus

Zig and Zag are an Irish puppet duo performed by Mick O'Hara and Ciaran Morrison. 
The characters are a pair of furry extraterrestrial twins from the planet Zog. They made their television début on RTÉs, Dempsey's Den, in 1987. A year later they won a Jacob's Award for TV Personalities of the year. In 1992 Zig and Zag found fame in the UK when they joined the team of the Channel 4 breakfast show The Big Breakfast. During the 1990s the characters spawned a merchandising range of comic books, videos and embarked on a recording career – scoring a UK top five single with "Them Girls Them Girls". 

In 2010 the characters saw a resurgence in their popularity as they joined the Big Brother's Little Brother team and in October 2010 they were commissioned to host a flagship Saturday morning radio show on 2FM called Smells Like Saturday. A brand new TV bloopers show hosted by Zig and Zag entitled Zig & Zag's Superbloopers was announced on the RTE TV website in June 2011 with a full series of the show broadcast in September 2012. 

Zig and Zag's first single "The Christmas No.1" reached No.1 in Ireland at Christmas 1990 and stayed there for five weeks. Their album Never Mind the Zogabongs...Here's Zig and Zag and second single "Zig Zaggin Around" both also topped the Irish charts in 1991. On the back of their success on the Big Breakfast the pair were signed by Simon Cowell and released two singles on RCA. "Them Girls, Them Girls" produced by DJ Erick Morillo was released throughout Europe and its highest chart position in the U.K charts was at No.5 for the week ending 7 January 1995.
