Best comedy of the 70's
23 October 2003 | by apailateSee all my reviews

I use to watch this programme as a kid, it was hilarious. I'll never forget the catchy tune music too. I wish they'd repeat again here in New Zealand. But knowing my luck, the political correctness of TV these days won't show it. Even though they show some vile programmes full of nakedness and profanity, it's hypocritical.
