Trivia

The name "Blanding" does not appear in P.G. Wodehouse's books, so the apostrophe in the title is a mystery. Lord Emsworth lives in Blandings Castle, near the village of Market Blandings, Shropshire County, England. See more »

Goofs

Pig experts have noted the program features a Wessex Saddleback, rather than a Berkshire, as the Empress of Blandings. See more »
