I cry with laughter every-time I see it.

The sad thing is that in today's modern world there are some jokes that you could not get away with, especially not "Ho ho ho little boy, have I got a surprise for you"

However I see it as just good clean fun and nothing else

Does anyone know what Mrs Slocombe got for her pussy for Christmas ? lol

Personally I'm the type of person that allows humor from all side so the "Ho ho ho little boy" thing always gets a giggle from me.

To me it was Humphries reaction to it that gave the punchline to the gag. They got the big laugh the first time but went for a second laugh with Humphries reaction. Some how i thought they should have cimbined the two into one punchline. The lead up used a lot of the episode time.

I like it the way it is. The staff's responses the first time are worth seeing. And when Humphries comes out we don't know how he'll respond but we know it'll be dramatic.

The first time the joke is the mannequin, the second time the joke is Humphries. I think there's room for both.

Good point well made that man

I think there is room for both too You really do need a proper Mr Humphries reaction to make any AYBS episode complete.

I guess the writers thought that for years.
