TV Series
    (September 8, 1972-April 1, 1985)
    Aired originally on BBC
    Premise: British comedy series involving the antics of oversexed sales clerks at the Grace Brothers department store
    Mollie Sugden as Mrs. Slocombe
    John Inman as Mr. Humphries
    Frank Thornton as Captain Peacock
    Wendy Richard as Ms. Brahms
    Trevor Bannister as Mr. Lucas
    Nicholas Smith as Mr. Rumbold
    Arthur Brough as Mr. Grainger
    Larry Martyn as Mr. Mash
    Arthur English as Mr. Harman
    Harold Bennett as ‘Young' Mr. Grace'
    The jokes were extremely risqué and low brow.
    Mrs. Slocombe made repeated references to her ‘pussy' (cat).
    The clothes sold at Grace Brothers looked like gaudy crap.
    They rarely referred to each other by their first names.
    They would sometimes break into song and dance.
    Gay groups were upset at Inman's flaming portrayal of Mr. Humphries.
    During the 1990s, PBS featured the show during its pledge drives.
    They lampooned the British class system.
    No one ever made fun of Mrs. Slocombe's weird bluish hair.
    Mr. Humphries did a thorough job of measuring the inside of guys' pants legs.
    The sales clerks usually got the last laugh over the management.
    The raunchy jokes had the unintended benefit of teaching eager adolescents about sex.
    Mrs. Slocombe was a TV trailblazer for pushy, sex-charged matrons.
