Created and written by Johnnie Mortimer and Brian Cooke (GEORGE AND MILDRED, ROBIN'S NEST), MAN ABOUT THE HOUSE was a phenomenally successful comedy for ITV1, running for six series in total, spinning off two further series and making household names of its stars Richard O'Sullivan, Paula Wilcox and Sally Thomsett.
While the Cat's Away It's Friday evening and Chrissy, Robin and Jo are having a bored evening watching television. The Ropers are invited to Mildred's in-laws for the weekend and the time is ripe for a party!
Colour Me Yellow There comes a time when a man has to stand up to see how tall he is. Robin finds himself several inches shorter than Big Mick and sits down again. Chrissy and Jo try to head off the showdown at the Mucky Duck Saloon.
In Praise of Older Men When Chrissy starts to get serious about an older man, Robin and Jo play gooseberry. He is just the sort of man Robin cannot stand - good looking, well off, successful. When he learns what's afoot, Robin decides to take a hand.
Did you Ever Meet Rommel? A cosy little dinner for six means trouble for Robin, Chrissy and Jo. The 2nd World War has a new lease of life when Mr Roper meets Franz Wasseman - he has never forgiven Hitler for blowing him out of his bath with a buzz bomb.
Two Foot Two, Eyes of Blue It's Leeds United versus Lechery when Robin and Chrissy go babysitting at a house with a colour television. But how can you score at either activity when the baby in question won't stop crying and the key to the drinks cabinet is locked away?
Carry Me Back To Old Southampton Robin fails his catering examinations and it looks as if he'll be leaving London to become a part of 'Tripp's Extruding Tubings, Southampton Limited'. Larry, his friend, more than fancies the idea of moving in with Chrissy and Jo, but the girls need to know a few facts about him first.
