A budgie for Mildred
23 March 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The final episode of Season 5. The show had proved so popular it was featured in the children's comic 'Look-In' from October 4th 1975 to July 24th 1976. Alan Parry provided the excellent artwork. Story lines included Robin buying a Mynah bird, Mr.Roper being mistaken for a burglar, Robin and the girls attempting to conceal a new bed George has bought as a present for Mildred, the gang moving into a converted bus when the house has central heating installed, and Robin trying to put Chrissy off her latest boyfriend Renaldo. Predictably, the sexual tension was absent, with Robin behaving more like an older brother to the girls.

The Ropers are having a wedding anniversary. George has bought Mildred a budgie, and asks his sitting tenants to hide it from her. Chrissy has come by two tickets for a Frank Sinatra concert at the Royal Albert Hall, and Robin is desperate to get them as there is a girl at the Polytechnic he is keen on dating. She exploits the situation by getting him to do all the household jobs.

One thing I've just noticed about the show is that the flat only has single beds. Which raises the awkward question - if Robin had had his wicked way with Chrissy, where would they have done it? Unless the sofa in the lounge doubles as a bed, their mating would have been difficult, certainly uncomfortable. Perhaps they could have followed Larry's advice and done it standing up. We shall never know.

Funniest moment - Robin hiding the budgie in his jumper to conceal it from Mildred.

Another successful season was over. The show would return in 1976, and for the final time.
