Storyline

Olive wants to re-decorate her and Arthur's bedroom, so, to do it on the cheap, Stan gets two tins of paint from the depot. They are the bus colours - red and yellow, which Arthur mixes to make green. Unfortunately he omits to add hardeners so that the paint is very, very, very, very, very slow-drying and Olive gets hand prints everywhere. Written by don @ minifie-1

"Like mushrooms? There's plenty growing on the ceiling!"

Olive and Arthur are constantly complaining about the state of their room, so Stan bribes Nobby at the depot into letting him have a couple of tins of paint. The room is duly decorated, and nice it looks too. But there's a snag - Arthur has forgotten to mix hardener in with the paint, hence it is still wet when he and Olive go to bed. Stumbling about in the dark, the short-sighted Olive leaves green hand prints everywhere...

This plot later provided a story element in the film 'Holiday On The Buses', only then it was a holiday camp chalet that got painted. Lynn Dalby went on to play 'Hazel' in the hit series 'Budgie' starring Adam Faith. Funniest moment - Olive asking an incredulous Stan if its not too late to put the hardener in the paint. His reply: "Hang on love, I'll scrape it off the walls and put it back in the tins!".
