Many a true word
6 October 2004 | by (Greater London, England) – See all my reviews

David, you have truly hit the nail on the head - this is brilliant! My family enjoy watching the video whenever we need something to help banish the blues. I really enjoy the banter between Santa and the store manager at the beginning, while my mother and sister grin like the Cheshire Cat during the Ballet sequence! The characters are very well written and performed (especially Jack Douglas's clumsy, hard of hearing butler, Crapper), and as for the names (Senna Pod, Crapper, Mr Belcher etc) - well, what can you say? This is a wonderful record of the Carry On team at their hilarious best. (Personally, I think the team are much funnier without Kenneth Williams)
