Right, I'll just wait for that to get hot and wet.

The basic premise is that George lives in a abandoned warehouse trying to make his way in the world by taking on risky and rather strange jobs. His recklessness is counterbalanced by his brother Donald's caution, who is on hand to give advice, but usually ends up as a victim of George's schemes.
This could have been 'The McGoodies' as it took surreal comedy into another street, in fact to a derelict house ( with a piano) down the road. Visually it was nicely put together and certain props such as the shape of the butler's bag are quite memorable. Jack Doherty went on to be a talk show host, but he belongs back here in comedy with his pal Moray. It didn't last long, maybe a wee bit before its time and perhaps it deserves a re-appraisal?
