Storyline

Ted Bullpitt's most precious possession is his Kingswood Holden car. He objects when his son, or his son-in-law, wants to drive the car and keeps the keys hidden. He is also unimpressed with his daughter's choice of a husband. Ted's brother is a sales representative for Datsun cars - something else which incurs Ted's disgust, as he feels that his brother should only deal with Kingswood Holden cars.

Humor at its best
12 October 2006 | by malvujicSee all my reviews

The cast just seem to click with all their political UN correctness,the one liners are absolutely magic how they all follow one another ,Ted's denseness when he comes home from work everyday inquiring about his paper and to its whereabouts, and how his comment,"Money on the fridge" is still used to this day. Ted Bullpit made the Kingswood and the commodore are household name name by always polishing the 'the dipstick' and forever giving his garden Gnome? Neville, I would say a much loved feature of Wombat Cresent, always plenty of airtime with his admiration of him. I think that it would have to be placed in the 'Classic' area of Australian humor.
