not sure if this counts as a blooper, but when miss brahms does her 'posh accent', i'm sure it's mrs slocombe who said she didn't know she took lessons... yet, in by appointment in aybs, that's exactly what she did, and why she got in trouble with a customer!

Near the end of the first episode of Grace & Favour, "The Inheritance", Mrs Slocombe puts Tiddles to bed (I believe this is the first time we ever see a real cat playing the part of Tiddles) and then Mr Rumbold knocks on the door and comes in to talk to her. While they're having the conversation, at about the 24:58 mark just as Mrs Slocombe is saying "Well yes, it's quite cozy, but why can't we have the proper hotel rooms?", you hear some jingling and then you briefly hear a cat screeching and meowing in a quite pissed-off fashion. I wonder what happened? My guess is that the on-stage pussy handler reached in to snatch "Tiddles" off the set but she wasn't having any of it. It's very funny, especially because Mollie doesn't miss a beat.

I just HAD to go back and check it out. Sure enough! Exactly as described and very funny even when expecting it!

Good work!!!

In "The Petrified Pussy" Mavis was making a lemon marange pie, and put it in the oven just before the Staff arrived. And she said "pie" singular; there was no indication that there was any other pies. But she offered it to them as soon as they sat down. Even a "microb-wave" can't cook that fast.

Oh think I found one, unless its already been mentioned:
On the last episode, the Darts Match, when the group is going to sneak into the house or whatevr Slocombe gives humphries cream, which he puts on his nose. Then Peacock tells him to put it on the tires.
Two secs later the cream is off completely LOL

She was using that "Cooking Show Oven" where the chef puts a raw side of beef in the oven and by the time he walks to the other side of the stage it's done!

Is that similar to the Soap Opera Incubator, where children are born then a few months later they are teenagers?

In "The Petrified Pussy" when Peacock was fixing up the room, the FIRST time he knocked a hole in the wall, there was a reflective surface under the wall. It was only there for a fleeting moment, but I have watched it several times on slow motion, and it is definitely there. The question now is, how exactly does a reflective surface get behind a wall?

In Mrs. Slocombe's Trial, there was a credit's blooper. In the credits,
they show Miss Prescott talking, but in the episode itself, she didn't say a word.

Most credit rolls are alternate reels they use

It doesn't take long for the meringue to cook and brown a bit. I've pulled one out about five minutes after it went in, and the nasty egg bit was perfect.
