More Mr Rumbold and Mrs Slocombe

I wish I had found this clip before last Friday's You Tube post of a humorous clip from Are You Being Served. Mrs Slocombe's expressions are just brilliant at times. The second clip today I have posted before but it was removed, so here it is again. I am sure you will agree we have heard quite enough about Mrs Slocombe's pussy, so this will be the last. I thank you for your patience.

  1. I haven't ever laughed so hard before breakfast!
    These are hilarious, I wish the TV stations would rerun the series. Do you know if it is available on DVD?

    1. River, because I would miss you terribly, I am reluctant to say that many full episodes are on You Tube. See you in a week or so.

    2. You Tube you say? Well well, who knew. They seem to have everything over there.

    1. Margaret, it took some time to find the exactly right clips but worth it, I think.

  3. LOVE the expressions. And wonder how many takes it took to do them. I would have been unable to do it with anything approaching a straight face.

    1. EC, an fellow actor visibly trying to not crack up can be wonderfully funny.

  4. I snorted. Then I laughed, sneezed, and snorted again. Guess it's that pussy allergy playing up again.

    2. Must be a terrible hardship for a woman to be allergic to.........oops, forgot where I was (*~*)

    3. River, I sure an pussy allergy would be terrible for some women. While I don't have an allergy per se to pussies, they can make me sneeze.

  6. Wonderful and classic. They rerun a lot on our television and they still make me laugh. Her false upper class come working class accent was simply perfect.

    1. Craig, pleased you mentioned her accent. Part of the humour of her persona is her mixed accent.

  8. I reckon they'd make a fortune of releasing the muck up reel (if any still existed).

    1. Jayne, wouldn't they ever. Like our ABC, the BBC taped over or destroyed many recordings that would really be enjoyed now. How about an episode of Steptoe and Son.
