Every episode of the 2 cult Australian comedies collected together in this 15-disc set
Edward Melba “Ted” Bullpitt is a conservative, Holden Kingswood-loving, politically incorrect WWII veteran constantly frustrated by the interference of family and intruders into his Wombat Crescent home in 1980s suburbia.
From his more progressive-thinking, vague and long suffering wife Thelma, to their sexually-charged medical student son Craig and feminist daughter Greta – who has married the son of Italian immigrants, to whom Ted objects, plus his prized concrete aboriginal garden statue named Neville, Ted’s life lurches from one misunderstanding to a chain of humourous events. And then there’s the intellectually challenged Rosa, who comes to look after a bewildered Ted.

The legend of Wombat Crescent has packed up the Kingswood, loaded Neville the concrete Aboriginal and moved into “Whispering Pines” retirement village. Australia’s favourite hero, Ted Bullpitt, tries to retire gracefully but can’t help plunging the village into chaos and confusion. Along the way we meet Joan Collins, the resident nymphomaniac who’s determined to get into Ted’s pants, then there’s Darcy Kelso, the chemically assisted handyman and the chronically eccentric Muriel and Johnno Johnstone.
