Did You Know?


Six episodes of this sitcom were made, but due to an angry reaction to the perceived racist content of the show, the series was pulled after one episode and the remaining five were never shown. (A previous series, Curry & Chips (1969), also starring Spike Milligan and with a similar premise, was shown in full.) See more »

Offensive to Muslims, Hindus Jews Arabs ... great
31 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was the funniest, most politically incorrect pilot of a show I have ever seen... It skewered every ethnic stereotype, including a Scots-Arab and was way too risky for the TV to keep... I only hope someone out there can put it on "Youtube". Milligan was probably the least racist comedian on television... how could an Irishman born in India with an inherent disconnect with British Society fail to be able to point it all out... His Pakistani-Dalek family sketch was of the same cast... One of the funniest moments in "the Melting Pot" was when the recently arrived ethnic Indian at the boarding house watches as an Irish coal man (never too late to be a coal man) washes off his dark skin.

It's a great shame it's not available David
