Young bachelor, Terry Scott (Hancock’s Half Hour, Terry and June) lives with his mother at 33 Lobelia Avenue in Tooting. He passes his days dreaming of easy wealth – no hard work required.
Simpleton, Hugh Lloyd (Cider With Rosie, Foyle’s War) is Terry’s lodger. When he’s not hard at work at the local aircraft factory, he whiles away his free time getting haplessly roped into Terry’s get-rich-quick schemes.
This hilarious sitcom sees the unlikely twosome encounter all sorts of scrapes and mishaps as bully boy Terry pursues wealth and glory, with the kind but dim-witted Hugh trailing along behind.
The series also stars Mollie Sugden (Are You Being Served?) as snobby neighbour Mrs Crispin and Patricia Hayes (A Fish Called Wanda, The Never Ending Story) as the doddery Mrs Wormold.
Produced by master of the sitcom, David Croft, who was also responsible for co-writing Dad’s Army, Are You Being Served?, It Ain’t Half Hot Mum, Hi-de-Hi and ‘Allo ‘Allo.
