Trivia

Apart from Mr. Humphries the staff were renamed from the UK originals, causing John Inman problems - not unsurprisingly, he would occasionally slip up and refer to a character's British counterpart. To circumvent this problem the Bone Brothers personnel were given ID badges to wear, helping the actor. See more »
