In one episode Jacko reads a bedtime story to a little girl. The cover of the book he is holding is clearly Stan and Jan Berenstain's "The Bears' Vacation" but the story he is reading out is completely different. See more »
This show centred around Jacko, a self-professed ladies man, who as a builder and decorator worked in many a housewife's kitchen. However, the real strength of the show was in the supporting cast, especially Howard Lew Lewis as Elmo Putney, owner and manager of the worst pub in London. He would scare away the customers with his full-on attempts at friendliness and salesmanship, and his finest hour was when he refurbished the pub into a wine bar, resplendent in flamingo pink and lace curtains everywhere. pressed to come up with a stylish, continental-sounding name for the new bistro, he chose "Elmo Putney's Wine Bar". He made the show what it was, a great half-hour each week!
