When I was a child phones didn't have the curly cords that most of us are used to.They had thick straight cords both from the wall to the phone and from the phone to the reciever. :wink:

I just noticed this blooper a few days ago.....
From "A Bliss Girl" when Humphries is modeling the fur coat for the customer and Slocombe comes out, he trips as the camera is ready to go to Slocombe. Watch it.. it's hilarious !!!!

IMO he was tripping deliberately due to the shock of Mrs. Slocombe calling his name.

Another one !!!! In the very begining of "Cold Comfort" the camera shot in question is one in the gent's department looking over at the ladies. You can see Mr. Grainger sitting on a chair by the ladies counter (the part of the ladies department that is rarely seen) He has the cotton in his ears already. It's dark over there but it's when the opening credits are rolling. Let me know if anyone else sees this !!!!!!

I've seen that and it's a bit eerie seeing Mr Grainger sitting there like that.

I can't recall the episode names but will look for them.....


2 about Mrs. Slocombe

First, There is a comment about Mrs Slocombe's Pussy, not knowing its
name, it is a later episode, yet Mrs. Slocombe has already mentioned it by
name.....tiddles in an earlier one.

Second, In the episode about her birthday, no one can remember her
name yet in earlier episodes, they call her Betty.

I'll see if I can put names to the episodes and their sequence numbers....

Default Mrs Slocombe

Both from "50 Years On"

Greg is right, the references to NOT knowning Ms. Slocombe's name nor her
cat's name are both in the episode 50 years on.

Ms. Slocombe's name (Betty) is first referenced in the pilot....the scene
where she is trying to influence Captain Peacock to make Grainger allow her
the use of the center stand. He calls her Mrs. Slocombe and she huddles in
close and says, "Betty"...

Her cat is named by Mr. Humphries in "Our figure are slipping"... The scene,
Rumbold is telling everyone to stay after and Mrs. Slocombe utters those
immortal words, " What about my Pussy"? Humphries, comments,
"Tiddles, will have to cross his legs"

These bloopers are more in the area of continuity(i.e. script writing) than staging.

The funny thing is she(Mollie Sugden) really was fifty (born in 1922 and the episode aired in 1972) or 49 if the episode was shot after her birthday.

Didn't something similar happen when Mr. Harmon played the wedding music for Mrs. Slocombe and Mr. Humphries' "fake" wedding? I forgot the name of the episode but Mr. Tebbs dressed as a Greek Vicar and the music keeps playing even though Mr. Harmon has taken the needle off the record.

Something like that.... :mrgreen:

The eppy is "Do You Take This Man" and you're right. This time it was a record player but the same thing happens. ALSO, In "Front Page Story" when the "Holiday Girl" contestants are coming out, the reel to reel keeps going but the music only plays for a few seconds at a time. :lol2:
