The anti-social Flodder family are living in a upscale suburban neighboorhood. They don't adjust to their environment, and keep on behaving like they're living on a trailer park. And the neighboorhood doesn't like it at all.

Over the years, Simon's character developed from an well-meaning fool into a more street-smart character and finally into a cunning rogue. Gerard Cox stated that he somewhat regretted this development, thinking it was more funny when Simon was as stupid as Jaap but with his own kind of demented genius. See more »
Just a note for the above review, the reason this program resembles "the Flintstones" is that both are based on the 1950's sitcom "The Honeymooners".
In fact, I've read that some of the original scripts were translated and rewritten.
It's really interesting to me that a technically short- lived (39 original episodes, though lots of sketches and specials later on) show spawned two incredibly long running programs. (As well as various other cartoons and movies of course.) I suppose the characters must be nearly universal.
