Hotel owner Basil Fawlty's incompetence, short fuse, and arrogance form a combination that ensures accidents and trouble are never far away.
John Cleese plays an emotionally beleaguered chef called Mungo in a Monty Python's Flying Circus (1969) sketch, and one of the things he gets emotional over is the waiter's struggle with a wound similar to Basil Fawlty's.
You'll have to forgive him. He's from Barcelona.
Many times through every episode, the walls wobble, revealing them as set walls.
The Fawlty Towers hotel sign has its letters missing, or scrambled up to make new words. The sign presents a different error with each episode.
For German TV-runs the main-theme was changed to "funnier" music.
