Trivia

It isn't publicly known why the series ended after two years, but it may have been from a mixture of things, from Ross Higgins growing tired of his iconic role, to the rise of several cast members, to ratings and budget concerns. The cast never commented on it as many of the cast went on to successful roles in theatre or TV. Years later one member of the cast commented on a video someone shared saying ' that they had a ball filming the show'. See more »

A brilliant piece of Australian Comedy
15 January 2009 | by bwm83See all my reviews

This show was sadly cut short too soon. An excellent show with plenty of laughs.

Bullpitt! was loved by many but was hated by political correct people at the time as well. I personally liked Bullpitt! because it was so politically incorrect. If only we could produce more shows like this.

The main character of Ted Bullpitt is offset well by the supporting characters Johnno, Muriel, Darcy, Samantha and Terri, who often supply extra ways to stop Ted enjoying his retirement.

The show contains many a great catch phrase, the two most prominent being "Pickle me grandmother" and "Someone should blow (insert item here) up".
