Storyline

Ted Bullpitt's most precious possession is his Kingswood Holden car. He objects when his son, or his son-in-law, wants to drive the car and keeps the keys hidden. He is also unimpressed with his daughter's choice of a husband. Ted's brother is a sales representative for Datsun cars - something else which incurs Ted's disgust, as he feels that his brother should only deal with Kingswood Holden cars.

Strike me Catholic !
14 July 2004 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

Pickle me Grandmother ! Strike Me Catholic ! just two of Ted's classic expressions. As a long time fan & studio audience regular I've lost count of the number of times I've heard that.

Kingswood Country is without a doubt my favourite Aussie Sit-Com of all time.!The cast of the show were great & the writing superb & typically Australian. Who could forget Neville the concrete garden Aboriginal ? or Gay Akubra & Repco Lad the laziest greyhounds in the world. Yes, Ted's behaviour in the early 80's is not too PC these days(nor is Eddie Booth's or Alf Garnet's) The supporting cast were great too ! Bobby Bullpitt (Ted's brother)Sister Maria (from St Josephs) Merle (Ted's sister in law. Without a doubt the funniest show I've seen.
