He was known for his immaculate comic timing as a television presenter.

And following his death this week at age 87, archive footage has resurfaced of John Hamblin's loosest moments from his time as a host of ABC's Play School.

The hilarious outtakes, which never made it to air for obvious reasons, were released for the show's 50th anniversary in 2016.

'Mistakes were part of the magic formula, but there were some bloopers that had to be edited out,' a narrator said when the clips were first aired six years ago. 

Hamblin wasn't shy with innuendos, and in one outtake was shown lying on the floor while a producer interrupted the scene to give him a pillow.

The producer said, 'We'll get you a cushion on the floor,' to which Hamblin replied with a cheeky smile: 'Who wants to be first?'

Hamblin also once tested out a poorly constructed slide made out of cardboard and pipes. Despite his co-hosts urging him to stop, he dove onto it causing it to collapse.

Children's rhyming songs were another part of the show that resulted in some funny outtakes, with the tongue-twisters resulting in accidental expletives.

Hamblin died at the age of 87 on Wednesday. 

The ABC paid tribute to his 'comedic timing and wit', saying he 'helped cement Play School as one of Australia's most cherished children's programs'.
