what's funny about being disgusting with food?
27 December 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This was a very vulgar and mean spirited sitcom. It featured a young couple who move onto a caravan site and find themselves living next door to a horrible pair of old rogues, played to the hilt by Arthur Mullard and Queenie Watts. The humour, if you can call it that, consisted of Mullard and Watts being disgusting with food - dropping fag ash onto the bread as they buttered it, dropping sausages onto the floor, etc. - all to the disgust of their neighbours.

James Beck died early on on the run, and his place was taken by Jonathan Cecil playing a posh fellow who was forever calling Mullard "you silly arse!" which sent Mullard berserk with rage. Not the most sophisticated comedy in the world, then, but I can remember finding it a rib tickler when I was a little kid. The adults in my family found it perfectly disgusting.

It was followed by a sequel series, Yus My Dear, starring Watts and Mullard, who also feature as their Romany Jones characters in the film Holiday on the Buses.
